Trend alert: bracelets have been popular for at least 40,000 years!

I hear this every year:

'Wow, you really caught this beading/crafting/jewelry wearing trend!'

Hmm...

I don't think beading is a trend.
I don't think crafting is a trend.
I don't think jewelry wearing is a trend.

I think beading, adornment, jewelry wearing and crafting are all things that humans DO. We make things. We like making things. We like wearing the things we make.

Boom.

That's why I love this article, about a bracelet made by a human(ish) person around 40,000 years ago.

Plus, cuff bracelets are totally on trend right now.
