Historians have found the first signs of jewelry ever being worn in Africa, almost 75,000 years ago. When it comes to creating jewelry, Africans will use everything they have access to. For this reason, African jewelry can be made out of a wide variety of materials, from bone and shells to animal teeth and hair. Throughout history, jewelry-making has been the preserve of women, with mothers teaching their daughters how to create pieces.
