Strand #4 has 26 inches of facet tubular beads in a variety of shapes and sizes. The mainly toffee coloured beads have great bits of red and green running through them. Here are two groups of blue beads, quite different from each other.
The strands of vaselines with mixed beads are just under 24 inches long. Strand #2 has a mix of yellow and green vaselines and is 23 inches long.
Strand #1 is all yellow vaselines and 25 inches long. These two strands have been put together like necklaces with clasps but the job was not done very well and they should be re-done.
These researchers have also demonstrated that while widespread, the changes did not amount to a singular process that affected all Southeastern Indian communities equally.
Consequently, the focus of recent research has shifted to exploring how the history of this period was experienced on a local level.
In this paper, I address this gap by characterizing a large sample of trade beads (n = 35,309) found in individual mortuary assemblages recovered from a number of Southeastern Indian sites.
This is the first time a regional synthesis of this scale has been conducted for the English colonial period in the Southeast.
Strand #2 has 30 inches of beads averaging 7/8 inches in length. There are two strands of restrung kakamba beads here, both interesting and a little different than the usual strands.
Strand #3 has 23 inches of short bright dark blue beads. Strand #1 has beads knotted onto cord with the strand measuring 33 inches around. Strand #2 is strung up as a necklace but rather messily done. The blue beads are in two sizes so the necklace has the appearance of being graduated.
and if you see the preview picture at about 1 3/8 inches tall it is close to life size... These blue beads were made from the grindings of broken trade beads, but re-made in Africa.
To ask questions or place an order please email me at: BE761. Strand #1 has 26 inches of beads which are very bright when light shines through them.
Archaeological excavations conducted at Hudson's Bay Company Fort Vancouver recovered 100,000 trade beads of 152 varieties, including 80 varieties of drawn, 57 varieties of wound, 10 varieties of mold-pressed and 3 varieties of blown glass beads, as well as one variety each of "Prosser-molded" ceramic and cut-stone beads.
