Original Message:   -beads are never boring to me!
Dear Lulu all beads are interesting and we learn so much from them- how they were made, what they are made of, and if they are copies they tell us what somebody thought was special enough to copy! and some of the old and traditional beads and bead jewellery may have had important and precious meanings for the people who wore them- such as the power of protecting against illness or harm.

maybe you know about christian, muslim, hindu or buddhist prayer beads, or beads with an eye design that ward off the evil eye?

if you collect and want to find out about any beads its hard to be really bored... quite ordinary small beads are used to make wonderful beadwork patterns...

right now when there is time, i am trying to list a lot of the beads in my collection to label and catalogue them properly and have begun taking photographs of them. i've been collecting for many years so my cupboards and shelves are quite stacked up...

i'm not such a good photographer so a friend is also helping me.
