When I purchased this collection of textiles I also got a few beadwork necklaces/collars. I'm having a hard time pinpointing where they may be from. I understand that this is beyond the scope of the forum so I hope it's OK to ask this here- but can someone point me in some direction toward researching these?

The blue one has a sort of fabric back.

I'm assuming this is the backside of the yellow one but I find this side the most interesting as it shows how the beads area being held together. I also have one with a felted back, don't know if these differences signal that they're all from different places?

Nice pieces. Try www.beadcollector.net which is a great resource and has alot of links. You might email the people from the Bead Museum in DC.

Thank you, Bill. I'll try there. I've seen that sight but overlooked it because it seemed focused on loose beads. I'm glad to hear otherwise.
