"In the distant settlement of Nuussuaq in northwest Greenland, a place one might call the middle of nowhere, lives Nikolaj Kristensen. He is a man without a fashion audience, and yet for his entire life he has been enraptured by the traditional Greelandic craft of glass pearl beading... he creates unusual pearl dresses for his daughter." (Exhibition leaflet)

It is a craft I have never heard of, Tom. It is very beautiful, but I guess it weighs quite heavy
Tom Wilson: I'd never heard of it either - not too surprising, really, given the location!

Blimey - he's a very talented man Tom!
Tom Wilson: He is indeed!
They are incredibly beautiful Tom
Tom Wilson: Lovely, but, as Lisl notes, must be very heavy to wear!

Another example to amaze me at the skill some people have.
Tom Wilson: And in the most surprising circumstances!
Oh, WOW, Tom. What a creative spirit!
Tom Wilson: Wow indeed, Ginnie!

Quite interesting and she is a good portrait subject.

In SA we have the Ndebele people who also use a lot of bead work in their clothing. https://www.flickr.com/photos/south-african-tourism/20507487652/in/photostream/
Tom Wilson: Yes, I think bead work of one kind or another is quite widespread - a colleague here in Borås brought back a shopping bag from Uganda with bead work all over it.
He would be called a bead artist in my circles.

Very pretty and colourful I have to say but perhaps not all that practical?
