Corn Tears necklaces are made from the seeds of the
corn bead plant, also known as "Job's tears." It grows
along the famous 1838 trail called "The Trail of Tears,"
where a third of the Cherokees forced by the U. S. Army
to march in Winter, died along the way to a reservation
located in Indian Territory.

As loved ones died, the tribal women cried. Everywhere
the tears dropped, corn tears plants began to grow. They
sprout seeds near the top of each stalk that are shaped
like teardrops. The seeds grow on the plant called "
Coix
lacryma jobi,"
a corn relative.
