The Love &
Peace Project is planning for a future museum, where YOU
can help create what goes in it. So how do love, peace
and beads relate to each other? A leftover 60's thing,
perhaps? It goes back way more than that.
beginning of time, beads have been used as adornment.
Sometimes, they helped establish a person's status. But
they also have facilitated trade and enabled
relationships with others, because they were currency.
Essentially, beads have brought communities together,
giving them value within a social aspect.
there are the activities associated with beads: making
beads, designing, stringing, selling. Aside from the
industrial variety, making beads is a form of expression
- it is art. You can't produce a beautiful bead while
being angry or feeling rushed.
is true for designing and creating bead jewelry. That
process of stringing beads is calming, relaxing, almost
meditative. And it requires time. It is exactly during
this time - let's just say while knotting a
pearl necklace - when you have the perfect settings to
contemplate about life.
gently stringing away, infinity and calmness appear. Peace and
quiet. Love and peace. And beads.
