This colorful book provides a brief overview of the bead collection at The Corning Museum of Glass, from the second millennium B.C. to the present. Fifty of the finest beads or beaded objects at the museum are present in this volume. All of these pieces were included in the exhibition "Life on a String: 35 Centuries of the Glass Bead" (May 18, 2013-January 5, 2014). While it is not intended to be an exhaustive survey on beads, this book is an assessment that may inspire the reader to seek more information in the specialistic literature on beads.
