Good grief is it cold today! I intended to make some new jewellery but it was so cold that my hands didn’t want to work properly, so I ended up tidying up and organising things for tomorrow. I will put the heating on if its cold, I can’t work when its like this. So those of you who are enjoying hot days or summer sunshine – enjoy it!
I thought it might be fun to share some jewellery or bead related facts and trivia with you, so to kick things off, how about this:
The oldest known beads are around 90,000-100,000 years old and were found in Israel and Algeria. The beads were made of shell and were roughly the size of a pea. It is believed that a flint tool was used to make the stringing holes… so I guess there is nothing new under the sun, is there?
It also makes a really nice walk along the beach. As you can see, we have shingle shores around here.
Lets hope its warmer tomorrow…
