About ilora

Sales 614
On Etsy since 2008

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.

I can get lots of different kinds of beads and charms -- if what you want is not in stock, I will find them at the lowest possible price and give you a price quote.

Be sure to specify wrist/ankle measurement or necklace length when ordering. If you need to change that after placing your order, send a message and we'll make a note.

Necklace Lengths
Any necklace 24" or shorter will have a clasp. (Sometimes I put them on longer ones too.) You will not have to fit it over your head. Specify your lengths when ordering. (Again, you can change it - send a message or email.)

Thank you for taking a few minutes to look at our wares. We will have much more in the coming months, so keep checking back.
