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

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.
