ESTATE EXOTICS: COLLECTIBLE BEADS
Sindi Schloss, GIA GG
Not only are beads the first form of jewelry, having accompanied humans since we lived in caves, but valuable cultural heirlooms which have become highly collectible. As prices for older beads increase annually, witnessed by prices at auction, beads have skyrocketed into collectible status. As jewelers, artisans and appraisers, we must be able to recognize these items and provide our clients correct information.
Join Sindi for a fascinating overview of the history of human adornment, as well as factors which help us to identify, categorize and determine value for collectible beads. Her newly released and invaluable reference book Beads: A Reference and Price Guide will be available for purchase.
Bring your loupe.
