Sindara mentioned:

<<< I tried my hand at
spice beads as part of my commitment to make 50 bead things for A&S50
challange. >>>

What are these? Are they herbs compressed and handled like rose beads  
are made from rose petals? Or are these spice seeds which are drilled/ 
punched and then strung? Was this a period thing to do or is this  
something modern using period spices? If you've written up  
documentation for this or an article, I think it might make a good  
Florilegium article.

What I do have on rose beads, in the RELIGION section:
rosaries-msg      (60K)  1/26/03    Period rosaries and their use.  
Making rose

<<< I also made 2 syrups using spices from my garden.  I am
now busily reading recipes trying to decide what I will do for our
upcoming Trial By Fire competition and periodically working on my
bead embroidery family portrait project for the A&S50
challange. >>>

Again, are these bead embroidery projects, either portrait or  
something else, a period activity?

beadwork-msg      (40K)  7/13/98    Beadwork on clothing. Bead types,
