    Default Beads in National Geographic

    Check out the April 2007 issue of National Geographic magazine. Near the front, under "Culture" (no page number) is a photo of a strand of beads, ancient to modern. One of them is only listed as "United States - Art glass portrait of Marilyn Monroe"... it sure does look like a Loren Stump!

    Wow, I don't know who that is. I hope we can find out - thanks for sharing that, Kim.

    Yup, that's mine. How did it end up in National Geographic, I don't know. I only made 2 Marilyn beads with a hand in pink glove on top. One went to the Bead Museum in Washington DC and I have the other. I never made one without the hand. Maybe someone who bought a slice made a bead with it.

    I just sent Emilo an email,
    I'm almost Emilio, huh? As a matter of fact, Emilio and I have a lot in common. E, M, I, O, S, A, and T.

    Hey Emiko--I clicked on the full page of the Nat'l Geographic on Kim's blog. At the bottom of the photo it says "Bead timeline of history, Bead Museum, Washington D.C." So that must be your bead that the Bead Museum has. --Kristen

    Thank you!
    And thank you Kim for thinking it's Loren's. I'm flattered.
    I looked at the bead again and could see the pink glove. So that's definately mine, both the murrina and the bead.
