Jen Segrest has a great little website dedicated to research on the Medieval use of beadwork in clothing and adornment. She has a number of links which include finds from the Victoria & Albert Museum, Class notes with "How-to's", and details on a 14th century (1300's) bead embroidered panel.....the website is packed with information. If you love to do beadwork - particularly for those who do bead embroidery - I recommend visiting this site, if only to get a glimpse of what beadweavers were doing 700 years ago....Click on the title above to get there. Enjoy!
