Melissa - the blue, white and red striped bead #84 (when enlarged it was
given
this number) looks very much like one of the beads I purchased at the
Archaelogical
Show of Indian relics about 10 or so years ago in Missouri. I purchased
three and they were sold to me as Native
American trade beads. Wonder if they originated in Africa. Thanks for
sharing
all the beads with us - this would make a wonderful lesson plan on African
beads
give the students some wonderful ideas . Roberta
