Re: [Authentic_SCA] Period beading on clothing
- If you haven't already found this website, http://www.medievalbeads.com/ , it's a great resource for medieval beading. Hope it helps.Cheryl----- Original Message -----Sent: Sunday, January 26, 2003 2:50 PMSubject: [Authentic_SCA] Period beading on clothingOk, thank you all for your responses to my question about gromets and
covering them. I appreciate the information and the constructive way
everyone posted (I have frequented some hostile boards in the past
where questions weren't answered so nicely!).
So, I now have another question...I have recently acquired a passion
for beading. However, I only really enjoy doing it on clothing right
now. I do like making jewelry, but a lot of folks are doing that,
too. I know that beading on clothing was done and is period (I only
use 'natural' beads: bone, stone, semi-precious gem types, and
metals), but I have had a hard time finding good examples online or
I use my imagination of course, and try to incorporate beading and
stitching together. I know my ideas of 'art' are very different from
someone living and creating one thousand years ago, so that is why I
search for reference points; I don't want to go off on too much of
any weird tangents.
Examples I have found are pictures on scraps of clothing, a few
paintings (these are portraits usually, not a lot of detail), and a
few lines in a book on general costuming. What I am looking for are
any websites dedicated in whole or in part to beading on period
clothing, or books of the same idea (I'd be keen on a chapter even!).
Again, I appreciate the time anyone takes to post links, thoughts, or
hints and I try to return the favor here when I can. Thank you for
all the help provided so far!
