Josh, thank you. I have to share these notes with my younger daughter, who absolutely cringed when she saw that I wore my Chumash bead necklace to parent-teacher conferences last night.
BTW, to those that might have interest, the beads in this string are ancient Channel Island bow drilled basalt and shell beads that were made by the Chumash Indians c. 800-1500. They were collected in southern California (when it was still legal to) and strung in the 1940s.
Very nice Alan! You own that look!
I seem to have acquired quite a serious fever... and the only cure is more hats!

WTB: 1900s - 1940s Fedoras, Homburgs, Westerns, Caps, etc.
Great outfit! Nothing wrong with that necklace. I am always wearing bear claws, bear teeth, or mammoth ivory. I don't think I have ever seen a string of beads like yours. Totally Unique!
My hats are like my motorcycles. They get washed when it rains!
