Hallo Stefany , thank you for adding me as your friend.  Looking forward to go through your book, of course to learn about the beads, I do have quite a bit and it will be great to read about them. Especially about the trade beads.

Greetings Ingrid.

Dear Stefany,

Thank you very much for your quick response. Indeed, it is about twenty years ago I bought your book. It became the first step into a passion. I design, restore and just 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 a compiled during these years. It is still under construction and texts and photographs are currently being revised. A part of the photo's are of existing necklaces and some are my own designs, as far as relevant to the text.

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.

You can enter it under:

or just enter   choosing bead necklaces   into Google

 I would be glad and honored to hear your comments and eventual corrections.

Warm wishes, Tsipporah Sofer

Hi Stefani, Thanks for the note about the AGM. I'm afraid I couldn't manage it but I'll try to get to the Bead Fair at the beginning of October.

Hi Stefany,

Probably not me as I rarely went as far as the bridge and I was not collecting beads at the time.

ANYWAY Its lovely browsing through all your beads sites. Thanks.

Hi Stefany, many thanks for  naming me as a friend.

Portobello Rd? I used to go there a lot and I visited lots of shops........I havent been there for a while. What sort of things were you  specifically selling? At the time I was buying  Middle Eastern prints......Now  as you can see I have moved  to ethnic/tribal North African jewels and artifacts.

Thank you again. Chantal
