1. From an auction at Christies – TWO MINIATURE BYZANTINE GLASS JUG PENDANTS CIRCA MID 4TH-EARLY 5TH CENTURY A.D.
    Both tooled, one blue in color, the other blue-green in color, each with an open network in yellow trailed around the body, meeting to form the handle, and continuing around the rim; mounted as earrings in modern gold settings with an ancient glass bead below
    2¾ in. (7 cm.) long (2)  (size includes the modern setting.)  Just the bead is desired.  Wouldn’t this be a cool waterbearer’s token?  http://www.christies.com/LotFinder/lot_details.aspx?from=salesummary&intObjectID=5004762&sid=af4b8650-a011-4863-ad08-5b8661c3768f
  2. From an Irish find – Kilmaimham – I wrote up some documentation on this find a while back, but failed to successfully make the bead, in the correct size.  Hopefully you’ll have more luck. Separate post.
  3. From Dunadd -The one I challenge you with is one of the tiny beads – Less than a centimeter in each direction, but with very fine detail with the twisted herringbone. – I took some of this information from the book, but here is the project data archive http://ads.ahds.ac.uk/catalogue/projArch/dunadd_var_2001/index.cfm
  4. From Hen Gastel – Wales – This one is huge, that’s why it could be difficult.  Note the large central perforation. Separate post.
