PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

The technology of making beads and creating objects with beads is thousands of years old. The variety of beadwork reflects the variety of culture over time and place. The new display at the Shirley Historical Society Museum illustrates these changes with beads that are 100 years old and 50 years old, and others that are brand new. Styles from Italian to African to Native American are displayed. There are beads made of glass, wood, metal, stone, seeds, flowers and felt. The museum is open for visitors Mondays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and other times by appointment. Admission is free but donations are always welcome. Phone 978-425-9328 or email mail@shirleyhistory.org for information.
