Original Message:   Conflicting ideas...
I've shown these beads here before making no claims as to what they were. Jake had commented that they were Phoenician with Roman gold....something which the seller never even claimed about the gold. Then Tasart attacked and said they were fakes made in Indonesia. Well, it seems that today there are many bead experts...I make no claim to be one. And, while I did give pause before finally buying them...as I see them and hold them and having examined them with a loupe...my instincts tell me they are authentic. And, once again...I love them regardless. And, someone on here has told me that all of my beads are fake, rather childishly I'd say. If that is indeed the case...I've bought from Jan, the Picards, the Pumtekman, Africadirect and some others. And, I've been told privately by Rosanna that I should try to fit in....well, I have never tried to fit in any place. I've always known and believed that you should be true to who you are and people should accept you or not for who you are. This is me. I love my beads and the things I've made with them...some more than others. And, I don't take myself too seriously and you don't have to like me. And, while I love beads...they're not the most important thing in the world.
