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: http://www.choosing-bead-necklaces.com

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
