Dread Pirate Roberts
As always, k did not come to dinner empty-handed. She arrived carrying a bag filled with the beads you see in the photo. They look like props from Pirates of the Carribbean.
These are glass and brass beads from Ghana. The brass beads are made using the lost wax method and the glass beads are made by magic.
I don't know just what I'll do with them yet, except spend a lot of time drooling over them.
