How about adding 1 lesson on the history of beadmaking. I'm afraid
I'm not full of information on this, but I was told that in some
cultures, (middle eastern, I think) parents would send their young
teenagers out at nght on a long journey which included crossing a border
into another country (the young girls could more easily get across) just
to purchase beads to bring home for the familly to be able to continue
their craft.
Perhaps a search on the net of the history of beads would be fun.
Good luck! Teresa Sheffey, El Paso, TX
