Our favorite web site of the Week:

BEADED SPLENDOR: Migration of Beadmaking and Beadwork Throughout Africa

This website has fabulous information about African bead work, both past and present. Photos are great but few. 

You can see many of the beads discussed on the Beaded Splendor website right here on and at our store in Takoma Park, MD.
