History: Beginning in 2400 BCE, small glass beads were first manufactured in Asia, the Mediterranean and Egypt. In Europe, small glass beads were created in Bavaria as early as the 1st century BCE and the Romans produced and traded glass beads throughout their Empire between 100 BCE and 400 CE.

In 1742, a Sheffield cutler invented silver plate when he spilled molten silver which then fused onto the copper handle of a knife. Referred to as Old Sheffield Plate, this new metal made silver items accessible to the masses.
