When I first started making beads, what I wanted to most
be able to make was a replica of a Viking Treasure Necklace. Here is my
final version. To read more about this necklace or to see a larger picture
of it, please click on the picture.
Here are some beads out of history I've re-created. Click
on the graphic to get a better look. These project was my first attempt at bead making.
This is a Paternoster that I made. A Paternoster is
a medieval form of the Rosary and was used to keep track of how many "Our
Father" prayers were said. This was a challenge for me because I was still
new to making beads and I had never tried to make any beads that were
matched for size - and this set required 50 of them!
And here is a very special bead that I made and presented
to Mrs. White, founder of the Sunshine Cottage School for Deaf Children.
These beads were made with waterslide decals that I made up
myself. The single bead is on a luceted cord that I also made myself.
