I know that this post is old, forgive me for answering so late---I have been
at the Pennsic War.
Beadwork is most definitely period. There are numerous examples of items in
which the designs are completely filled with beads. As a matter of fact, one
lady at the A&S display at Pennsic was showing the photographs she took of a
beaded purse in the V&A dated sometime in the 14th century (I'm fuzzy on the
exact date, so please don't quote me on that). It was gorgeous. Lots of close ups
of the beads. When I get unpacked I will post the URL for her website where
the photos are posted.
