Discovered - Throughout the Egyptian Kingdom
Crafted out of clay-like faience, beads were commonly worn to protect the wearer from misfortune, rather than a status symbol.
The Egyptian word for lick is "Sha," & "Sha Sha," came to be the word for the bead. These beads were also buried with mummies to protect their journey to the afterlife.
