Myth-Meaning-Magic
2018 September 5th Meeting on Jade with Steve Kruse

 

In this presentation David Horste will take us on a tour through history, examining the earliest manifestations of beads and jewelry from 40,000 years ago and what they tell archeologists about early human civilization. From that early start we will journey through millennia and across continents looking at how different people and cultures have made and used beads and ornament throughout time. The various myths, meanings, and magic associated with form, material, and presentation will be shown through images and storytelling. This talk is not meant to be an academic treatise but rather an overview of looking back through history so that one may better understand ways we make and understand jewelry today.

The Bead Society monthly meetings feature illustrated lectures by an authority on beads or related subjects. Meetings start with a social hour and refreshments.

This is a great opportunity to meet with like-minded bead enthusiasts, collectors, bead-makers and share their knowledge. This is your bead society and everyone has the opportunity to learn something from others.
