That is what I thought a laurel is to be also.  However, this Laurel can
make her own glass beads, but does no beaded embroidery or beadwork of any

indispensable; And no man is useless while he has a friend."  Unknown.

My guess is that, at best, she was being unhelpful, and, at worst, she was
being rude.  The "you're just not looking hard enough" response somehow
implies that the speaker has found it and you haven't.  But where I come
from (kingdom of the West) Laurels are supposed to be part of the solution,
not part of the problem.
