Skill Share: History of beads, part 1 by Laurie

Laurie covered prehistory up to the Egyptian dynasties.  Part two will be in October.

Show and Tell:

I'm mixing the show and tell in with the material Laurie showed us in her presentation, due to laziness.  It is left as an exercise to the reader to decide which objects illustrated the history of beads and which are merely things members brought to share.  Mouse-over the image to see a short description and click for a bigger image.
