Lunula: For instructions on how to embroider with beads, check out the class section at http://www.dnaco.net/~scababe/medievalbead/ . I also second the miningco site--check under 'previous features' for all *sorts* of neat ideas.

Hey Lunula: I have found excellent patterns and instructions in email@example.com and also in Aunt Molly's Bead Street. Native Tech is wonderful for actual Native American crafts. Good Luck and Rainbows to you!

Greta, Calgon (the water softener) in a 1 to 25 ratio with regular tap water, soaking for 12 hours. Then rinse them (put them in a plastic collander). Works for stone, glass, bone and I expect (I am currently experimenting) with other materials as well.

Thanks a lot Pete and beadman. We'll be testing this weekend. We just discovered this website. It's great to have all these responses. We will certainly be back with more questions.

Pete: - acc-31.northnet.org - Tuesday, November 24, 1998 at 21:11:27 (EST)
Eric and Fadila, Another quick and easy test is to jab the bead with a needle near the perforation, If it chips (unless it is in very poor shape) it is a natural resin, not plastic. any older beads will already be chipped.
Suidanr - Indian "feather" beads will have a white, powdery perforation deposit in them (this is sometimes scraped out, but rarely). They are on the market in West Africa. In the first edition of Beads of the World (you can buy it through this site) after consulting with many dealers I priced a strand from $80-100 U.S. They are probably 30-50% more now.

Greetings. I need your help in fuguring out whether the feather beads I have are genuine beads from the W. African trade, or new Indian ones. If they are genuine, how much are they worth. You can look at their picture at http://members.aol.com/suidanr/feather-beads.jpg. They were bought from Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, West Africa this past summer. You do not find many available in the market there and the seller insisted that they are old. Were there any Indian beads in the W African Trade? Any information about these beads is greatly appreciated. Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org

Greetings to Eric and Fadila in Bamako. I followed Lissa's lead to the Viking Lady's amber ID page. Here are a few comments and additions. [First of all, although Viking Lady credits Patty Rice's book for providing the test information, Rice actually acquired this information from me覧from my 1976 article that appeared in The Bead Journal. Let's give credit where it's due!] There are basically 3 simple things you can do to test "amber"覧but remember, at least 85% of what's called amber is actually phenolic plastic (especially in Africa)..., and this is fairly easy to determine. When brisky rubbed for one minute (time it!) phenolic plastics make the smell of carbolic acid, whereas amber smells similar to pine resin. Don't bother with making three different brines for flotation tests. Put 8 oz (one cup) of water into a jar and add 2 tablespoones of salt. Amber will float in this brine, while phenolic plastics sink. (Many light plastics float in plain water, which amber will not.) The hot-point test is best conducted using a long steel darning needle, about 3" long, and using a candle for heat (to keep both hands free). Amber melts with difficulty, and makes a pine-like aroma. Phenolic plastics do not melt, and make an unpleasant acrid odor. Other plastics melt with greater and lesser ease, and have various smells覧but are very different from the aroma of real amber. Celluloid and a few other plastics are quite inflammable! Be careful! Also, carefully sniff the aroma覧since the smell of burning plastic can be very unpleasant; and even amber contains acids that will iritate the throat. In my experience, rather few beads have been made from Copal (or "young amber"). In recent years, this has begun to change覧and nowadays it's possible to find some (from Africa and South America). Copal melts much more easily than amber! It smells very similar, and will float in brine. Don't bother trying to rub "amber" to see if it creates static electricity. Most of the good imitations also do this. E-mail me for any other questions. Jamey

My wife, Fadila and mayself are actually living in Bamako - Mali and have recently gotten interested in collectible beads. Bamako certainly is a good place to start a collection. We are frequently confronted with the problem of differentiating real amber or copal beads from plastic ones. Can anybody come up with a relatively reliable test

Jetstar -- Thanks for your kind words. Kiffa beads have been revived, so they are still being made. The older ones, at least are expensive, running $40-50 each. The newer and cruder ones are not so costly. Send me a message by email (you can send it through the hiome page) and I'll add your name to our list of people interested in tours.

Hi Peter: I am fascinated by Kiffa beads. are they still being produced today? I need to look in Collectable Beads & History of Beads , for more facts about them, but was wondering about the prices of them and how abundant they might be, I am into all sorts of beads and wearable art. Would love to go on a bead tour someday to India. I love your website, So much info in one place!

Forward from: Aliea
I just started beading and am wanting to find instructions on how to make those beaded lampshades that are so popular now. Usually, they are made of an amber-gold bead, and I was wondering where to find the materials and instructions for the project.
Thanks so much for any info you might have!!

We set the default to 20 so the page would load fast the first time for those just wanting to chat or post a message.
Set the number real high (say 1000) to see the entire current set of messages (and don't worry, you won't get 1000, but you WILL get everything available back to Oct. 1 which is several hundred anyway).
Hope this is clear. Any questions can be sent to CGIguy@webscans.com (That would be me) or posted here. :)
Greg: - pt19495.olympus.net - Friday, November 13, 1998 at 23:08:25 (EST)
Nancy: Actually, the current messages go back to October 1. Just increase the number in the "Display the last" field above (which defaults to 20) to see older messages.
On December 1, the messages from October will be removed and archived. On January 1, 1999, the messages from November will be removed and archived, and so on. So there will always be between one and two months' worth of messages available here.
Pete: - acc-20.northnet.org - Friday, November 13, 1998 at 21:16:56 (EST)
Nancy -- Yes, it has changed, but you should be getting more than 20 messages. It is now being archived and one of these days (oops) I'll put a link up for them. Just lazy (or busy, I guess). the messages you can read on this page are from November only.

Manufacturers of wooden letter and symbol beads.
I know you specified silver but this was the only one that even came close. I hope it is useful. Good luck in your search.

Hi Lissa -- As a bead stringer for over 30 years, I can tell you the best cord to use to string pearls is SILK. DO NOT use Soft Flex (unless you are planning to do a fast-but-not-very-pretty job). Sometimes silk cords are hard to find. However, if you have a decent sewing center with a notions counter and thread department (and/or some bead stores), you can get what you need. Buy 100% silk Button Hole Twist thread, in white or the color that matches your beads best. The weight of this doubled will pass through most pearls, and allow a proper holding knot to be tied between the beads. (Learning to tie knots with silk is not easy, and takes practice!!!!) For a needle, buy a "collapsable-eye" needle. This is a piece of thin wire, folded in half, and twisted tightly, but with a big eye that's easy to thread. (If you can't find them to buy, make them from fine beading wire--that's what I do.) For more details, e-mail me. Jamey

Here's a question--I've been asked to string a necklace with fresh water pearls. What is the best stringing material and method? Softflex and crimp beads? (I think I heard the .014 will go through fresh water pearls...) Or silk? Knotted in between? What weight silk?

I am trying to place a Japanese glass beads enthusiast to beads manufacturers and designers for a
9-month internship or apprenticeship. The intern is willing to pay a monthly stipend to defray food
utility expenses. Could you help me find a host family?

Karen: Oops. I just tried it myself and there is indeed a problem. It is easily fixed. I am going to priority e-mail Pete and ask him to let you know here when it's fixed. Sorry bout that. :)
Greg: - pt19497.olympus.net - Wednesday, November 04, 1998 at 13:04:57 (EST)

I'd like to know if anyone else is having problems getting into the Bazaar/B.I. imports site. I haven't been able to access that one, although others on that page work. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks
Karen: - spider-we041.proxy.aol.com - Wednesday, November 04, 1998 at 02:23:07 (EST)
I want to thank those that have provided me with information about the neuva cadiz bead. I'm finding this whole process quite fascinating and and fast becoming a bead lover.
Pete: - acc-13.northnet.org - Tuesday, November 03, 1998 at 21:15:56 (EST)
Ann -- Is that small-hole? We've just put up an entire catalogue of beads on thebeadsite.com. To visit hit Bazaar (in the line at the top of this page) and B.I. Imports. Most of the beads have larger holes (if you're looking for small holes), but small-holed beads are coming. The eye beads with lashes on the Eye Bead page have small holes.
