80,000-year-old Beads

Yep you read right, 80,000 year old beads.

That was a headline on yahoo news this morning so of course I had to check it out..

It goes on to say:- Even the very first modern humans may have spruced themselves up with beaded bling. So, check it out for yourself...

Since beads have been around for that long I sure don't see them going out of style any time soon, do you? LOL
