Peace, Love and Flower Power, Baby!

I'm really telling my age here, but I once had psychedelic, neon colored posters plastered all over my bedroom walls, big bright tissue paper flowers stuck in funky vases and peace signs everywhere.  I listened to Janis and Jimi and wore hip hugger bellbottoms and tie dye t-shirts.  Yep, I am a child of the 60's.

 When the March Etsy Beadweavers challenge theme "Fashion Through the Ages" was announced, it wasn't hard for me to find inspiration.  I remembered those big, daisy style, neon colored flowers we plastered everywhere; in our rooms, on our possessions and on our persons!  I remembered the long necklaces we wore, singly and in multliples,  with our bell sleeved tunics and our granny dresses.  So, for the challenge, my memories created a long, multi-strand, daisy chain necklace in vivid colors of purple, orange, blue, yellow, pink and green.  I have to say, it is far out. 


Can you say, "Groovy, man!"?
