The beads that I made were not a very period recipe.  However,  I do 
have a couple of period ones that I plan to try for one of the events 
I plan to attend in September.  It was more me trying to see if I 
could do it type of thing.  I made the beads out of ground spices, 
applesauce and a fixitive.  The documentation that I used was a 
description in The History of Beads by Lois Sherr Dubin.  I am 
gathering more documentation so that my documentation can be more 
comprehensive and organized.  One I get that together, I can talk 
about an article.
