If I take close ups will it help in identifying if they are old/authentic? What is the age range of pyu/tircul culture beads?
Iím such a beginner, trying to make sense of grannies collection. Also, I am a jewellery designer myself (Grannie was a jeweller whose work specialised in her own hand made silver beads alongside those she collected) and I donít want to blindly use her beads without a true appreciation of what they are! Maybe some are too precious to use in my own work.
Also, I have some carved varieties and treated varieties that I think are pumtek, based on what I have researched so far. Iíll post photos of those in this thread too..
