What is next in human existence? Beads! That's what Christopher Eng- land of the Intergalactic Bead show professes. "Right after hu- mans attained the aforementioned necessities, a look around re- vealed some eye-catching object of nature," said the former Newark resident, also known as Leo Kraus, "The Bead Man." "With any luck," he added, "the object was perforated, easy to string and dangled as an adorn- ment." All types of beads will be sold and discussed Aug. 2 and 3 at the Aetna Firehouse in Newark, at what England calls the "2,138th Intergalactic Bead Show." The show will feature 65 tables of beads from ancient beads to those made while-you-watch. The show will draw vendors from near and far, including S & A Beads of Re- hoboth Beach, and Bead Gypsies of Clearwater, Fla. The Aetna Firehouse is located near the inter- section'of Route 273 (Main Street in Newark), and Routes 2 and 72. The show will be open Saturday, Aug. 2, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $4. This is England's first show in Newark, though he has held others throughout the country. An an- tique dealer since 1976, England purchased a shoe box of beads 15 years ago at a flea market and be- came hooked. "Beads are nearly as negotiable as dollars," England said. I've bartered them for food, clothes, drink, entertainment, and even a gold tooth." The show will feature S & A Beads of Rehoboth, owned by Su- san and Abraham Silverman. S & A will display pre-Columbian beads, Roman glass beads, beads from the period of European ex- pansion into Africa and America, and many more varieties. Steve Bastian, of Colgan Sta- tion, Pa., and the owner of "Stevie Didn't Do It," will also be on hand, selling the fimo beads he makes. Fimo is a plastic clay that becomes hard when heated to oven temperatures. Bastian will be demonstrating his techniques for creating these colorful wonders. The techniques and designs he us- es were developed by the Roman glass makers 2,000 years ago. Other show vendors include Rick Baldwin of October Moun- tain Craftworks, Greenfield, Mass., who will offer Roman and other ancient glass beads; Randy Continued on page 72 cakes as well as a variety of other tasty treats.
