#BEADS0172 - Navettes -  Japanese Millefiori Flower Cabochons - Pick Your Color
Vintage 14mm Glass Japanese Millefiori Navette Flower Cabochons with faceted backs. We found these in our big find on the West Coast. They were in with the rest of the stuff that they brought in to sell to the hippies in the late 1960s. The colors are very beautiful. Flower Power indeed. The word "Millefiori" is Italian and means 1000 flowers. To make these flower patterns on the beads is labor intensive and requires hand cutting a hot cane of glass that has been patterned. They are all handmade and so the sizes will vary a little and they may not all be perfectly round. Found unused still in their original packages. Pick your color and size from the pull down menu.

They were sold as hippie items 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. Some of the items that he brought into the store were much older, and we will note them in the listings. The hardcore hippies wanted glass or ceramic or earthenware, so that is what most of these items are. The lucite stuff was for the fake hippies. 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 is 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.
