Traffic Light Beads

Purpose: To to recreate a style of early Anglo-Saxon bead labeled by scholar Birte Brugmann as  “Traffic Light Beads.” These beads are interesting because there are several different construction styles that were used in period to achive a similar effect. One of the construction techinques, applying twisted trails, I was also not able to do  before starting on this project, making this project a valuable learning opportunity for me.
