beads with multiple holes from prehistoric times

The Swabian Jura, sometimes also called the Swabian Alb or Swabian Alps in English, is a low mountain range, more precisely a high plateau, the largest part of which lies in Baden-Württemberg. In the summer of 2017, six caves in the Ach and Lone Valleys, entitled “Caves and Ice Age in the Swabian Jura”, received UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage status. Here, archaeologists have discovered many thousands of years old sculptural legacies of human kind. The caves are sites of the oldest art objects in the world: carved from mammal bone, e.g. a horse’s head, an aquatic bird, a human-like figure with the head of a lion, a finger-sized statue of a female torso – “the Venus of Hohle Fels” (also known as “the Venus of Schelklingen”) – named after its…

Send them to us at: editors@perlen-poesie.com Fine precision in small spaces The Matubo seed bead is now available in size 11° (manufactured by Matura Beads s.r.o, Czech Republic). It is available in a wealth of colors and coatings. What’s exceptional is that these very small beads are produced using press molds rather than the usual method of using glass tubes that are cut. This way, they are very precise in both shape and size.

plan and play

F rom this combination she has created something wonderful. Let’s start by saying that she i s an “HSP”, as scientists put it, a Highly Sensitive Person. She speaks openly about it. It doesn’t mean that someone is ill, but has a particularly sensitive nervous system that perceives subtleties in the surroundings quickly and with a wealth of nuances, processing complex information that one feels more intensively and in which impressions long resonate. It is the opposite of being a “thick-skinned person” – even if they would like it sometimes, because life with its many “disturbances” (stimulus flooding) is often too strenuous. By the way, scientists estimate that 15–20 % of the population is highly sensitive, but try to ignore it. For about 10 years, she has also suffered from…

to catch a crystal

And so we continue w ith o ur clever S warovski bezels. This t ime we’ll be addressing three bezels for more common crystals in rather square forms: Classical Square 16 mm, Octagon 18 x 13 mm and Square Octagon 23 mm. The basic technique used was explained in issue 34 of Perlen Poesie, and is based on the popular RAW (Right Angle Weave). More extensive information is available in the book “To Catch a Crystal”, published by BEADERS BEST Publishing: www.perlen-poesie.com/books. Important here is the careful attention needed to produce this narrower version, which guarantees a s ecure h old o f the c rystals w ith the maximum amount of surface left visible.
