Beads: The Seminole loved beads. 

From the time a baby was born, a string of beads was placed around his or her neck. 

At age 3, the boys switched to a scarf. But girls continued to receive new bead necklaces, to add to the ones they already wore. 

By age 5, the beaded necklace a girl wore would have grown to about 36 inches. 

Adult women wore beaded necklaces that were about 60 inches long. Although each necklace was heavy, women wore more than one necklace at a time.  Necklaces did not hang down. There were wrapped. The women wrapped them around and around their neck until you could not see their neck at all. All you could see were beautiful beads.
