Oct 10, 2018 - Bennett McCardle: Animal, Vegetable, Mineral: Endangered Materials in Bead Jewellery Making
Bennett will share her knowledge and research on endangered materials used to make bead and similar jewellery today.
Why are these materials endangered? Are there types that are not endangered? How can you tell the difference? Why do some vendors sell them? Are there substitutes?
Bennett will try to answer these questions for the materials listed below.

- Shells (abalone, specific tropical types)
- Exotic woods and seeds
If you have any samples of the above materials - please bring them in to show the group.
