DillsDesigns' Shop Announcement

Welcome to Dill’s Designs, specializing in custom pieces creatively made from Job’s Tears (pronounced Jobes Tears). Each piece is created with care and passion and my hope is to pass this onto you.

The beads in the banner above are called Job's Tears. The name refers to the droplet-shaped beads and to the biblical man, Job, of the Old Testament who endured great suffering.

In 1831, Native American people were forced to leave their homes. As they walked along a trail they cried for the loss of family and home. Their tears fell to the ground and where they landed sprang up a small shoot of “tears” from the people’s suffering. Today, Job’s Tears can be found along this “Trail of Tears”.

The seeds are different shapes, sizes and shades of color that range from white, to grey, to darkest brown, and some have two or three colors combined. No two seeds are exactly alike. Job's Tears are naturally lustrous and appear like pearls. The seed has a natural hole through the center, and it has been called Nature's own bead.

Dills’s Designs is located in Northern California and owned by Odilia Schott. Thank you for visiting!
