BARBETTA LOCKART’S collection of art supplies and world market treasures.
WORLD MARKET BEADS 1
Beads, Beads, Beads.... what would we do without ornamentation. Beads in some form or another have been around ever since people have been around, and I am quite enchanted with them. These pieces are from China, and of varying ages. I picked many of them up in a bazaar in Guangzhou, and had a great time going through boxes and bowls, looking for just that special piece. Others came from a very kind woman who had a stall across from where I was staying in Guilin, and with whom I would chat (somewhat) and laugh (a lot), and sometimes eat lunch--- they are not old, but interesting none the less. The flat etched pieces and a few of the other bits came from suppliers here in the US, and are not old. I hope you enjoy them.
