Many explanations have been repeated ad nauseam, no doubt, by you and others, but in defense of anyone trying to use the Search Function on this site before asking again- it is not always as easy as it could be. I have better luck Googling BeadCollector and the Subject.
I think one of the hardest challenges is attempting to "unlearn" all of the pervasive misinformation that is out there about Beads- the correct age, the correct origin, the correct type of bead, etc. I know I may scream if I hear another person try to tell me that Lewis and Clark Beads are 300 or 400 years old, and that they were Traded by Lewis and Clark with the "Indians" on the West Coast. For starters..
I am trying to incorporate the information I learn in this Forum when discussing beads, and pass it along. It is a work in progress, but the willingness of everyone to share knowledge in here, as well as show their interesting beads, is a genuine asset.
To paraphrase PFJr- It's not (just) about the Beads, it's about the People.
It's not a stretch to say that a good bead could fascinate me for a lifetime- from the hands that made it to all the necks that have preceded me.
thanks again, Anne
