Travels memories

Thirty seven years ago I found a bead in the Sahara sands,( the black thin round one on the upper right) I added it to an amulet leather cord given to me by a woman in exchange of a small tunisian silver bead.I lived for a long time in North Africa…

Dear Marie Jose,

Thank you for your quick response.

Yes, we do have in Israel the use of cloves as scented beads. They are used among the Bedouin who live around me. I put such a necklace on my site on the internet.

Since about twenty years I design, restore and collect bead necklaces. As I feel very lonely in my village in the Negev desert in Israel with this hobby, I started a site on the internet to inform the public en large about all kind of aspects of bead necklaces. (no selling!) The site is based on a huge library I compiled during these years. It is still under construction and texts and photographs are currently being revised. The site has several purposes: General information, (hidden) tips for those who make necklaces and finally it will teach people about the different necklaces over different places and times. One of the chapters is about bead necklaces as cosmetics:

Here you can see such a Bedouin necklace. (It is made for tourists I suppose.)
On this page you can see also one of the necklaces made of Tunisian amberpaste beads I have in my collection. 
Furthermore rose petal bead rosaries are also made here in Israel.
I would appreciate it very much if you have remarks, additions and or corrections for my site.
Wishing you well and more fruitful bead research, Tsipporah Sofer
