  1. Hi! thank you for your great website and sharing your vast knowledge. I do have a question for you though if you do not mind. I was wondering when the use of spangles started. Im thinking 14th century but wanted to hear your thoughts. I do not ever find actual history on spangles other than how they were made. There is never really a when and where mentioned.

  2. Hi! I’m looking for Persian or Ottoman beadwork and drawing blanks all over the place. I would think with the Silk Road running directly through that territory, you’d see beads. Can you advise?

  3. I tend to concentrate more on western europe, so I am am not really your go to on middle eastern.

  4. Well the ones on the site are really the only ones Im aware of but it’s nto realy a bead perse, so i havent really gone too deep down the hole on it.

  5. Hi, I am looking for more information on the 14th century sudarium you show. Can you tell me what museum it is located at and where I can find more details on it?

  6. Hi Jen,
    I am looking to find examples of 3D beadwork. Old european, folk art, mixed media, with beads, wire, silks. Like an open box frame, with a cornucopia of materials.
    Any ideas?
    Love your site and work,
    Best wishes, Anni

  7. Hi! Look in the baskets or decor areas, there’s some “stumpwork” which is semi 3D.
    But truly 3d not really. That’s a more modern artform.
