East Javanese Beads as Palau Heirlooms

Part One of Three

A rich Palauan heirloom necklace. The crecentric pieces were cut and drilled from glass bangles.

Note the decorated beads toward the top -- they were made in East Java between ca. 600 and 900 AD.

Picture from Palau Pacific Resort: like no other island dream, a brochure put out by Pan Pacific Hotels, Tokyo Hotels International.

Palauan dancers, also from the brochure.

Close-up of Palauan dancers show them both wearing single beads altered from bangles.
