#BEADS0172 - Group of 4 Lavender 17mm Japanese Ceramic Powder Big Hole Beads
Click the picture to see larger more detailed image. You will get 4 for $1 (that's 25¢ each). Vintage lavender colored 17mm long big hole ceramic powder coated beads. These were in boxes marked "Made in Japan" and are from the late 1960s. 

Hippies were stringing big hole beads on rope back in the day and these had the earthy look that was popular. They are in unused condition, and are very uncommon. They were sold as hippie beads in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area. In 1967, the hippie phenomena dominated the area and the demand for beads was huge. The owner of this store put out the call that he wanted all types of beads that were either colorful, large, earthenware, or had mystical significance. The hardcore hippies wanted glass or ceramic or earthenware, so that is what most of these items are. The demand started slacking as the hippie phenomena died down and by the mid 1970s, they started selling gold chains and disco related items instead. The hippie items were taken from the front shelves, and stored in the back. The newspaper they were wrapped in was dated 1977, so that's when they put them back there. The most striking thing in the store was an old display of huge African Trade Bead necklaces from the 1800s. They were even selling those sort of beads to the hippies. One of those necklaces will run you about 2 grand now. That place is a real time warp. You could still smell incense around some of the boxes and I kept hearing Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane in my head. Just amazing.

You get 20 for $1.00 (that's 5¢ each). Small 5mm long bright gold colored oblong football shaped bead. Openings on each end are hard to see in the picture. I am not sure of the material they were made of. They are brightly colored with no tarnish at all and from the 1960s. These could be them as there is no tarnish at all. Excellent unused condition.  Found these on a big east coast trip.
