Migration of Beadmaking and Beadwork Throughout Africa
B eadwork is one of the most compelling art traditions in Africa. Artists must carefully consider the materials, colors, textures, shapes, and sizes of the beads to choose those that compliment or contrast with one another. A single-colored or multi-colored bead of fine workmanship may have as great a visual impact as many beads strung together or embroidered on a cloth.
This archival exhibition explores the creativity African artists demonstrate in their beadwork. It focuses on how African peoples incorporate beaded dress and regalia in their lives and on how peoples from different regions wear or carry beaded objects to define themselves within their societies.

Sioux Beadwork
Western Sioux Beadwork - Designs and Colors
by Chuck Bousquet
originally published as CIHA Indian Craft Series No. 1020
The following information is a very, very brief resume on the Western Sioux beadwork designs and colors. It is assumed that Sioux-style hobbyists are already aware that the beadwork is done in lazy stitch directly on the item they are going to de­corate (with a few exceptions such as shirt and legging strips which are beaded on separate pieces of leather and then the piece is sewn onto the par­ticular item in the appropriate place). With this assumption, therefore, let’s get into the designs and colors with just a little background history first. Before glass beads were introduced to the Plains by traders, the Sioux had perfected the art of using porcupine quills to decorate their clothes and belongings. The quills were dyed red, bright yellow, weak blue, bright orange, weak green and purple. Vegetable dyes were used until about 1880 when the whites traded aniline dyes and the colors became brighter and more varied. This quill-work was done on pipebag fringe, kneebands, bustle ties and other large objects using the simple wrapping technique; the sewing and weaving methods were used for moccasins, pipes and feather decorations. By the late 1880’s to 1890’s, the Sioux had a style of beading using certain colors and designs that were different than any other tribe. There are many techniques involved in making beadwork look like the style of the tribe you desire to represent. Not only colors and designs, but the method of beading, are very important. The fol­lowing are guidelines to help you make your fin­ished beadwork look Sioux.

The Bead Site = Home Uses of Beads Cultural Decoration Contemporary Beadwork of the Ndebele of South Africa A beadworker at Esther's shop in KwaMhlanga district. by Bucklee Bell Botshabelo woman with beaded headpiece. The Ndebele are a cultural group living in northeast South Africa in an area called the Transvaal or KwaNdebele, northeast of the capitol, Pretoria. They were originally part of the migration of Bantu cultural groups from Central and East Africa into southernmost Africa around 300-400 AD. The Ndundza branch of the Ndebele (who primarily do the beadwork) were defeated by Boer (Dutch) settlers in 1885, and for five years were slaves on Boer farms. Freedom came in 1890, but to this day the Ndundza have been dependent on Boer farmers for work. The Dutch took all the good farmland and the Ndebele were left landless. They suffered much during apartheid and this undoubtedly affected their beadwork. Ivor Powell (1995:108) wrote, "As the Ndebele are concerned, the demonstrable history of beadworking goes back only as far as the second half of the nineteenth century, when Europeans bearing beads of Czechoslovokian origin penetrated the hinterland and came into contact with people living in present day Transvaal." Because there are photographs and examples of sophisticated beadwork from this period. I think its safe to assume the Ndebele didn't just start doing intricate beadwork in the late 1800's, but must have had some beadworking tradition before this time.

The Glory of African Beadwork
Written by Ettagale Blauer and photographed by Jason Laure;
The desire for personal adornment appears to be universal, dating to at least 25,000 years. African beadwork not only serves as decorative jewelry but as a complex introduction into the colorful web of traditional life.
utward appearance is the surest way to differentiate one person from another, and the desire for objects that can decorate or distinguish the individual appears to be universal. In fact, the practice of personal adornment is at least twenty-five thousand years old. Evidence found in Stone Age graves and domestic sites includes objects that are recognizable as jewelry. Ivory beads, necklaces made from fish vertebrae, and other objects are frequently uncovered in such locations.
Wearing distinctive apparel and adornments conveys specific personal and social information. Indeed, the physical expression of a culture is made as evident through ornament and dress as it is through ritual and ceremony. The form of decorative objects depends, of course, on the materials at hand. Historically, these were either local products or things acquired in trade. So it is with the beadwork of Africa. Beaded jewelry is a rich tradition in African culture but one with fairly recent origins. Curiously, it is a tradition dependent on imported European beads, trinkets brought to Africa as objects of trade.

Indian Summer has the perfect location to purchase local Indian beadwork from various Native Americans, as Salt Lake City has a large population of Navajo, Shoshone, Ute, Goshiute and Paiute Indians. The majority of our work is Shoshone. The Shoshone Bannock Reservation is just two hours away over the border in Idaho and many Shoshone people have made Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas their home. In addition to the Shoshone beadwork, we get Navajo beadwork from locals, and also from families located nearby on the Reservation in the Four Corners Area, a mere four hour drive from Salt Lake City. We also feature Pueblo beadwork, which we pick up mainly at Zuni Pueblo and Cochiti Pueblo in New Mexico. The Ute work we carry is from locals, or from the Ute tribe near Vernal Utah. We also feature Southern Ute work, which we purchase on our buying trips near Cortez, Colorado. Goshiute work is either local, or purchased from residents of the Skull Valley Reservation located to the west of us towards the Nevada border. Occasionally we get some Nez Perce' , Ojibwa and Choctaw beaded items through acquaintances we have met over the years. Many of our bead work artists have had their work displayed in museums across the west, featured in national art magazines and have had many local write ups in the Salt Lake Tribune for their work. We purchase only the finest handmade pieces available.

April BJP: Page Accompli!
The page for April is titled Air/The Sylph:
The design of this one came about all of a sudden - I knew I wanted to create a sylph , a spirit of the air, using my own conception of what one would look like if you could actually see one. In my mind's eye I pictured wings of gold, soaring the creature up into a cloud filled sky, borne aloft by the spice winds. I began the piece by chosing my focal pieces for their color and effect. I've always associated yellow with light and air, and while the head is a glass bead and the body a piece of agate, they both seem to be streaked with clouds.
I centered the figure within the alchemical symbol for air . The wings sprouted out in a sort of art deco kind of way, then the big, puffy clouds moved in. The spice winds flowed in out of nowhere, swirling around through a deepening twilight.
The page for May, Beltane, is underway and already I'm loving it. Don't want to jinx myself by saying too much. Posted by morwyn at 3:03 PM 6 comments Labels: bead embroidery Bead Journal Project
