Story Bracelet - $30 (plus $3.99 s&h)
The Story Bracelet was created out of my loves of folklore and jewelry. I used to have bead parties where clients could make their own beaded jewelry. These were very popular with my storytelling colleagues, who were always looking for something unusual to wear when performing. As we created, I would tell them the histories of the beads and their countries of origin. We used blue evil eye beads from Turkey, Chinese cloisonne beads, crystal beads from Czechoslovakia, and many others. Everyone wanted to select beads that represented stories they knew. The Story Bracelet was born!
Many adults (especially teachers, librarians, and those who work with children) tell me that they would like to learn how to tell stories but do not know how to start. The Story Bracelet Manual is your "beginner's class in a bag". The book contains hints on performance techniques, a description of the beads, stories that match up with some of the beads, and a resources chapter for more story sources. You can personalize the bracelet by choosing stories that go with the beads you like.
Wear an original piece of jewelry. Let your audience choose a bead and delight them with its story!
