Wedding beads from Czechoslovakia
were used to trade as money in West Africa. They
are called wedding beads because each time a guy
dated a girl, he would bestow the girl he was courting
with a glass bead like this. The more beads she gathered,
the more desirable she'd become as a bride and hence
considered good wedding material!
