The shape and texture of Charleston Rice Beads pay homage to the port city’s history – an economy founded on rice that helped establish an important cultural center in the Southeast and the United States. Our Charleston Rice Beads are imbued with the spirit of the modern Charleston girl – a creative and independent adventuress. These fabulous beads are meant to be worn at different lengths, wrapped in different ways, and even stacked as bracelets. Trade them, share them, and give them away. Made in the U.S.A.
