Depression Bead Demonstration

August 5th, 2016 by Pecan Tree Inn

130 Turner Street, Beaufort, NC
(252) 728-5225

August 6, 2016
1 – 3 pm

As part of the Beaufort Historical Association’s Living History series, Gigi Koehler will conduct a depression bead demonstration on Saturday, August 6th from 1:00-3:00 pm followed by a depression bead workshop on Thursday, August 11th at 10:00 am in the Beaufort Historic Site’s Welcome Center, 130 Turner Street.

Ms. Koehler will demonstrate the way depression beads are made out of rolled paper, and then strung together to create unique necklaces and bracelets.  Although they originated during the Victorian Era, the beads got their name because women and girls during the Great Depression made jewelry out of paper instead of purchasing more costly items.  Despite the inexpensive source, the paper beads added a vibrant pop of color to the wearer.

Each year during the museum’s August traditional skiff sailing event boaters race around the islands for the Shanghai Trophy. Originally, the Shanghai Trophy was awarded to a winner in the Comet class. The disappearance of Comets from the sound left the cup in limbo but, after the resurgence of local recreational sailing activity in the late 1950’s, it resurfaced and has been awarded to the winner of that class of boats with greatest representation in the race. In the last few years spritsail skiffs have battled for this historic trophy, which resides in the Web Library. This race starts in front on the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center on Taylors Creek at about 9 a.m. North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, 315 Front Street, Beaufort. www.ncmaritimemuseums.com.

Join the fun for a great meal and witty presentation from Kristy on both of her novels, Dear Carolina and Lies and Other Acts of Love. Reservations are required for this presentation. The cost is $22.

Kristy Woodson Harvey’s captivating and insightful debut novel, Dear Carolina, introduced a fresh voice to southern women’s fiction. Now, with her second novel Kristy cements her status as a writer to watch. Bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand raves, Lies and Other Acts of Love establishes Kristy Woodson Harvey as a major new voice in southern fiction. A beautiful testament to the steel and elegance of the South and its women, Lies and Other Acts of Love is a powerful examination of the lies we tell to protect our loved ones—and the life-altering consequences of a hidden truth revealed.
