Hello fellow Beadzillas! I must once again reassure you that I exist! We just moved, and I hope as we settle in and I am able to set up my bead room again, to pick up blogging a bit more frequently.
That aside, it's now time for the 3rd edition of our Beading Back in Time blog hop challenge. Since the beginning of the year, my beady buddy Sherri over at Knot Just Macrame and I have been hosting challenges for some of our beady friends. All we ask is that each person challenges their self, within the theme, in whatever way they choose. It has been just lovely to see all my friends take this idea and run with it, weather they make jewelry or beads, work with needle and thread, or clay and kiln.
And so, in our challenge, we have finally made it up to the period of time we are calling " Early Civilization". This theme will encompass anytime from 3500BC to 500AD...and yes, that is a LOT of civilization to choose from! Surely there will be something that inspires everyone! This era of time includes the following cultures (not in chronological order):
