Initially, the beads were used in high-profile burials, but over time, they became more prevalent and available to a wider range of people, and were found in medium and small burials as well.
Today, one of the best known glass artists to take influence from warring states beads is Larry Brickman. His beads are amazing, and he is a master in the placement of dots. Here are some images from his gallery - he rarely has beads available but he does teach! (I tried getting in touch with Larry Brickman to inform him I was showing his work but my emails were returned).
