Davy Jones / The Monkees "dreamy" 1967 Love Bead Necklace Authentic Replica:
Davy Jones Of The Monkees "Dreamy" 1967 Love Bead Necklace
Available from Mojo's Beads is a replica of a love bead necklace that Davy Jones of the Monkees wore as seen in the pictures.
In 1967 Davy Jones started wearing these love beads after receiving them as a gift from photographer Henry Diltz. He is the same person that made Jim Morrison's famous Young Lion Necklace (see my other sales). Teen magazines, like 16 and Tiger Beat, began selling them for a short period.
This necklace is not being sold by anyone at all (, Google, stores, online shops, rock 'n roll memorabilia shops, etc). As of 2013-01-01, Mojo's Beads has come through yet again with an incredible original design of a necklace worn by Davy Jones. As with all my necklaces, it's made with the highest quality Czech beads and a very strong nylon cord made for bead making (C-Lon 0.5mm).
The length is approximately 28" (or longer), custom lengths available, email me with inquiries.
The ends are not tied purposely, so that you can shorten it if you like, and/or add a clasp
(I personally just tie a surgeon's knot. It's very easy and incredibly strong. A clasp will break the pattern of the necklace. I can definitely add a clasp if you like, however I do not recommend this at all).
Frequently Asked Questions:
Beads - I use the same high quality glass Czech beads that Henry Diltz used, resulting in a beautiful and completely accurate finished product. There are other makers of these necklaces that use larger or smaller beads, but I like to keep it one hundred percent true to the original.
Cord - The cord that I use is the most important part of the necklace. If too thick, the knot will not be tight enough and will come loose over time. If too thin, there's a chance of it breaking. I use 0.5mm C-LON cord that has a breaking strength of 35 lbs. This is extremely strong for a necklace as the average breaking strength of fishing line is only 20 lbs. When knotting a cord of this thickness, you get a nice, clean, tight knot that will never come loose, while at the same time incredibly strong. Cords thicker than this will not knot tight enough. Also it does not stretch over time as other materials can.
Shipping - I ship out my orders extremely fast, usually the same day. Tracking numbers are not provided with shipments. I have shipped out hundreds of packages to every continent in the world with very few issues (check response). I use a strong padded bubble mailer. If your package is lost or stolen and you did not purchase tracking information, no refund or replacement will be granted. If you would like a tracking number please contact me before buying.
Why Mojo's Beads - The combination of the highest quality Czech beads, 0.5mm C-LON nylon cord, super fast shipping, fantastic customer service, and the great level of passion that I put into my products equates to the best quality product available in the world.
