In 1907 Leo Baekeland invented Bakelite, the first fully synthetic plastic, meaning it contained no molecules found in nature. Baekeland had been searching for a synthetic substitute for shellac, a natural electrical insulator, to meet the needs of the rapidly electrifying United States.

Most exotic wood beads originate in the Middle East or southern Asia,but Europe is also a source of wood beads. The Czech Republic producesinexpensive pine and bass wood beads for children's toys and macramécrafters, as well as inexpensive wood beads you'd find in bead shopsworldwide.
