This is the Mini version of our Charleston Rice Beads in sterling silver! Did you know that Coastal South Carolina during the Colonial Period was the largest producer of rice in America? Around 1685, a brigantine ship sailing from the island of Madagascar encountered a raging storm, perhaps a small hurricane, and put into Charleston Harbor for repairs. The captain of the ship gave a gift of a bag of rice to the town’s best known resident. Thanks to the Captain and the resident…rice in Charleston became quite the crop! And thanks to Charleston Jewelry and Gifts, you can now have your own replica of Charleston Rice! What a wonderful gift for bridesmaids, graduates, mothers, daughters, grandmothers…need we say more?!? Did we mention Christmas gifts?
