There’s always so much to do to get the objects ready for a new gallery. I’ve been helping number these Egyptian objects in the conservation lab, so each one can be returned to the right box or shelf in the store room.
Brush a small area of the back with Paraloid solution. When dry, write the accession number with a permanent marker pen.
A few weeks ago I was re-threading egyptian bead necklaces.
Take a bead off the old necklace (brown cord) and thread onto the new cord (white). Tie a jump ring at each end so it can be hung from pins on a display board. I love the shades of blue in this necklace, above.
