Current Research Projects

The Seed Bead Project

The Asian Maritime Bead Project

Other Research Projects

Beads are woven lengthwise and breadthwise into the human story. Their study is as inexhaustible as the inquiry into the human condition. Pick up a bead anywhere and you change the structure of the fabric and the location of other beads. It's like a butterfly in China dictating snow in Kansas.

At the Center for Bead Research we are involved in several projects simultaneously, some of them over long periods of time. Some projects of current interest are listed below. If you are interested in helping out on any of them, e-mail me at the Office. Select "Current Project" as the Subject.
