This is the Web Site of the Center for Bead Research. Since 1979 the Center has become the world's largest and best-documented archive of beads, literature, photos and bead sample cards. We study them using the scientific method, always concentrating on the people who made, traded, used and lost the beads. We have always had an ambitiousresearch, publishing, lecture and workshop schedule.

The Bead Site is our latest service to the Bead Community
