in Carmel, CA. So Father Serra used them to "reward" the Native Americans that were servants there as well. This is San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo, founded in 1770,so there's a date frame for the old Bohemian "Russian cut" bead production. I remember very well admiring the milky opalescent ones on display there, because I happened to be wearing my strand of the very same bead type purchased from the Picards, from the African trade.
