Beaded Treasures

“Beaded Treasures from the Collections,” a new exhibit at the San Bernardino County Museum in Redlands, will open in the Hall of History on October 1. Curator of History Michele Nielsen will give a special Gallery Talk on Saturday, September 24 at 2:00 to preview the exhibit and give visitors the opportunity to examine some of the beaded treasures up close. The exhibit and the gallery talk are free with museum admission.

“The exhibit takes a look at some of the remarkable clothing, textiles and accessories we care for that feature beads as a part of their ornamentation,” said Nielsen. “We’ll have objects from the Victorian era through the 1920s, both commercially manufactured and hand-made by talented individuals.”

During the gallery talk exhibit preview, Nielsen will briefly review the history of beads and how they have been used as decoration and adornment and will talk about the types of beadwork represented by examples. She will also discuss design influences and pattern sources utilized in the past.
