Although I have made my own sets of love bead necklaces in the past, I also admire the works of other peace- love- joy nostalgics like me...such as the above little gem, brings back warm and fuzzy memories of my youth. I am wearing it now as I write this, and the seller did a great job making these. I would highly recommend her services.

Since 1967

My father was the first to show me how amazingly beautiful things could be made from simple materials. He owned a home craft business making fishing flies. It was just magical watching him. He also handset the type for his own catalog and ran copies off on a big wheel-style printing press. He taught me everything I know about marketing and customer service.

I started selling hippie style strings of colorful beads and artificial flowers at school in 1967. In 1969, seed beads were called love beads and strung on elastic thread to be worn as chokers. I made dozens of these for myself and friends. In college, I sold embroidery, beads and poster art. In the late 1980s, I started tying friendship bracelets and making covers for mini composition books.

I am always looking for new skills, ideas and styles. And my dream is to someday own a little head shop like the ones I remember from the hippie era, offering jewelry and incense, psychedelic posters, wind chimes, wall hangings, door curtain beads, scarves, shawls, hats and sandals, greeting cards and decals.... maybe a bit of glassware.
