The Most Authentic Jim Morrison Necklace In The World.

Jim Morrison Cobra Necklace™ Setting the gold standard in authentic replication of the love bead necklaces worn by Jim Morrison,such as the Jim Morrison Cobra/Young Lion necklace.
The 1967 Authentic/Young Lion photo shoot bead necklace:

This is the original authentic replica of the world famous Jim Morrison young lion (cobra) bead necklace that Jim Morrison wore during his photo shoots in September of 1967 with Gloria Stavers and Joel Brodsky in New York City, New York. I started making these necklace's in the mid 90's for friends, local shops and craft exhibitions. In fact the first one that I made was in 1994. That being said it is my belief that with my almost 20 yrs. of extensive research and attention to detail that I have enabled myself to recreate the finest, most authentic replica Jim Morrison cobra necklace available anywhere in the world hands down.

What you are getting-You will receive the finest exact detailed authentic replica of Jim Morrison's 1967 young lion photo shoot bead necklace available. I use the exact same size seed beads that were used to make Jim's original necklace. Some seller's choose to use a bigger or smaller size bead however I keep it in its form just as it was in 1967. Each necklace is traditionally hand crafted for excellence and made with vintage (NOS) private stock czech seed beads.

I hand select the absolute finest glass czech seed beads available and use the strongest C-Lon Tex 400 nylon cord for bead making. I do not use fishing line, I believe it compromises the quality of the necklace as it ages. All photo's are to show the exact detail of this necklace. The pattern and colors I use are exactly the same as the original one's that Henry Diltz used to make Jim's. The result is a 100% accurate and authentic replica of Jim's famous bead necklace that is hand made by me and for you to enjoy.

Why Choose TheYaYaShoppe? Its simple, I offer the most authentic handcrafted product available anywhere in the world and have been doing so for almost 20 yrs. I use only the highest quality materials available in the industry and that alone is what sets me apart from my competitors.

Request for custom length versions of any of my necklaces are always welcome.

C-Lon Tex 400 Cord. Hand braided and spun in house and wax coated for superior Break strength 75 lbs. (this is the strongest bead cord available). This interwoven cord is the most important part of the necklace and I refuse to use anything less than C-Lon Tex 400. As of right now I am the only maker of the Jim Morrison bead necklace in the world using this high quality beading cord and have been doing so for years. I use this cord for all of my necklaces and I also suspect other seller's will soon follow my lead on this as well. Trust me the stronger the cord, the better and longer your necklace will last.

Czech glass seed beads: Each Czechoslovakian seed bead is hand selected for quality and uniformity and are the exact same size as the beads that Henry Diltz used for Jim Morrison's bead necklace. Each necklace is an exact hand made authentic replica of Jim Morrison's young lion photo shoot bead necklace. The sole purpose of creating my etsy store is to provide the worlds most authentic Jim Morrison bead necklace and Jim Morrison cobra necklaces available and I truly believe that I have accomplished that.

Each necklace is a beautiful 27 to 30 inches long. Custom lengths are available! Through almost 20 years trial and error I have found that tying a secure knot seems to work best and keeps the integrity and quality of the necklace intact. However if you prefer a clasp attached to your necklace I can do that, just let me know. Please feel free to check out my other listings for even more necklaces or to make a custom request. I am proud to offer the most authentic product available anywhere in the world. Thank you.
