    Ancient beads are used to make unique pieces of jewellery. Artists Irena Corwin travels to Turkey, Morocco and China to research traditional jewellery and to buy raw material at bazaars.

Some of her jewellery is displayed at the beginning of the film. Irena puts on some protective glasses as she works. Narrator explains that a London art gallery broke with all its traditions to give a showing to some of Irena's jewellery art.

    Sequence showing some of Irena's jewellery being modelled by glamour girls. They sit in a living room eating peanuts and drinking cocktails.
