Good day everybody,
My real name Is Ashby McKenney, I am a Historical Re-enactor with a fascination and deep love of Pearls. I go by Satine De La Courcel in the re-enactment group. group. Pearls are my chosen area of research. Since my persona varied from 1450-1600 and that was a time when pearls were awash in the courts of europe... I seek to make my perona as accurate as possible. I am also very iterested in learning as much about pearls from history and current goings on, as I can. I find it fascinating.
I am desperately seeking resources on pearling in Europe, Specifically Scotland, Denmark, Russia (and any other countried from 1000-1600 that were active in the european pearl trade of the day, I have the Book of Pearls by George Frederick Kunz, 3rd ed 2001 and The book of Pearls by Joan Younger Dickinson, They are wonderful resources however I am seeking for more resources to continue my research. any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you very Much in advance for your consideration to my request.
