Early Medieval Irish Glass Beads (& beads imported into Ireland)

Source: An Examination of Glass Beads from Early Medieval Ireland, by Margaret Mannion

Note: This picture is showing my own glass beads that I recreated using information found in the source referenced above. The goal of this project was for me to learn more about early period Irish beads, and to attempt to recreate these beads and understand the bead typology which was developed and created by the author of the above source (updated 10/20/15).
