Business briefs for Wednesday, Oct. 25

Susan Barrell, owner of Frozen Music Design, will put on a trunk show at Down Under Dreaming Australian arts and crafts store at 614 Main Street on Oct. 27 and 28 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Oct. 29 from noon to 6 p.m.

Barrell works primarily with trade beads, both those from the expansion period in the 1600s, 1700s and 1800s. She also carries ancient and excavated beads. Recently, she has been finding more far eastern (trade winds) beads from China, Tibet and Thailand.

She also uses more contemporary beads along with older ones in her designs, but the focus for Frozen Music Design is Barrell’s interest in the history and cultural importance of the beads and "how much they still speak to us today and still look wonderful worn!"

For the event, Barrell is trying to get Leo Hakola to attend. Hakola is a nationally known expert on old beads and has been featured in many articles. He has many great stories of where the beads come from and the lore behind them.

For more information, Barrell can be contacted at or at (801) 277-2475.
