You know me....Whithhearts...the actuall atrical was about the terms and tech of the famous overlay bead, the famous Cornaline D'Aleppo.
The actual title was "REGUARDING CORNALINE D'ALEPPO BEADS'.
This is one artical that I just can't read enough...That is probubly obvious by the number of times I still screw up when I talk about them....."redhearts" duh....
I do have some trit little pub's myself...junk like autographed coppies of "Seventh centry beads from Holland..vol XIV by G.B. Fenstermaker..and Extract from script titled...Beads as a dating medium in proto-historical archaeology..by A.P. DuToit,MA.
And besids the Liu and Dubin book I have Glass beads from Europe,by Sibylle Jargostorf....
But like I said...that artical about Cornaline D'Aleppo by you is fab.
I t makes me wish I had all of your articals...(time for a book scribbed by your hands).
And I know that some of our life long members could come up with all sorts of words and photos on african trade beads...names like TASART,DOG BONE,Joyce,FLOORKASP And many others whom I listen quit closly...
I think something like this could take our disscussion to a whole different level.
Perhaps we could find a way to incorporate photos from the gallery linked to these articals????
I'm not a computer expert............Beginner is a better term for my expertise with computers.
I know that to do this someone would have to do lots of work programming,but whowever got it done would sure be my hero for life..
I would surley send every thing I have to contribute to this effort...
Hows-a-bout....the rest of you guy's here at BCN...do you have something we could use to start a downloadable resorce center????
I think we have an oppertunity to make something really big in the bead forum world.
Any other ideas out there????????????

However, I don't think I wrote the article you mention. Sorry.
Will think about what I can contribute when I get back from Tucson. Have some stuff on my blog, and perhaps the text version of my Briare book could be interesting.
Also, I have some European articles that maybe not everyone has seen.
Actually, thinking as I am typing: I made a list of books and articles for my book on Beads from Briare. I will copy-paste it below.

See...thats what I mean...I had no idea that you even had a blog....and I've been hanging around for a long time...10 years+.
And....Why are there so many blogs???? When a "NEWBIE" and believe me, I'm forever in that catigory, comes to the point they decide to really try and research theri beads, They don't know all this blog and group stuff.(take it from me) They/I need a one-stop does it all kind of forum.
Thats what I found here at BCN. Thats why, at my store, I always tell people about BCN.
Now I'm finding out that there's a possability to have acsess to ton's of great,if not the best,bead information on earth right here at BCN.
I love the articals we already have here at BCN but it's time for more..
I fly radio controlled helicopters when I'm not doing beads..RC Heli flying is a real HOBBY,beads are in a leuge by themself.
However...Eventhough I'm not a member of any heli-blogs, I have visited their forums.
They have a newbie section on their forum,they have sub-forums on topics such as.Transmitters,servos,rotor heads...etc
Maybe we could devide our threds into different catigories???you know....Bead ID,Ancient,Venetians..etc.
And like I said befor...Some of you guy's who have been selling,importing and trading beads forever should have lots of advise and photos on how to help folks learn about fakes and condition issues.
I looked around for a great bead dissussion forum to hook-up with,BCN was my choise...
I tell my costomers to come here if they doubt my representation of a bead....I believe what I get here....(and I really love the drama that happens here from time to time)I wish we had a section for just those threds...anyhow..
I see the potenital for a great site to become "THE"site about beads
I'll help....whatever I can do....who should I send the manuscripts I have to???
I have some ideas for catigories for putting things in a time order for studing...can we scan things and send them in for sharring??(I don't like any shareware type stuff,too easy to hack into)but downloadable from BCN...
Oh well, This idea will show that I'm really as crazy as my posts would indicate, or that anyone can come up with a good idea..
Thanks for listening to my blab...dannoh
