Available from Mojo's Beads is a replica of the love bead necklace worn by Val Kilmer during the 1991 movie The Doors. This is not the pattern that Jim Morrison actually wore. The movie changed the colors and pattern of Jim's necklace.
I make these myself with a high level of pride and care, using a very strong nylon cord made for bead making (C-Lon 0.5mm), and the highest quality Czech beads (the same type that Henry Diltz used to make the original Jimbo necklace in 1967).
** As of 2017-04-28 I can make an "exact replica" of this necklace, using the same size beads that were used in the movie, as opposed to the slightly larger beads that everyone likes. If interested please contact me **
As with all my necklaces, it's made with the highest quality Czech beads and a very strong nylon cord made for bead making (C-Lon 0.5mm). The length is approximately 30" (plus or minus one inch). Custom lengths available (shorter or longer), email me with inquiries BEFORE purchasing. The ends are not tied with a permanent knot so that you can customize the length. I personally just tie a surgeon's knot. It's very easy to do and incredibly strong. The necklace will come tied with a temporary knot. If you would like me to tie a permanent knot please message me to do so during the purchase (do not wait to message me with instructions/inquiries as I often fill and ship my orders very fast, often within twenty minutes after I receive the order!).
Frequently Asked Questions :
Beads - This necklace is made with the same bead type that were used on the necklace that Val Kilmer wore. They are the highest quality glass Czech beads available.
Cord - The cord that I use is the most important part of the necklace. If too thick, the knot will not be tight enough and will come loose over time. If too thin, there's a chance of it breaking. I use 0.5mm C-LON cord that has a breaking strength of 35 lbs. This is extremely strong for a necklace as the average breaking strength of fishing line is only 20 lbs. When knotting a cord of this thickness, you get a nice, clean, tight knot that will never come loose, while at the same time incredibly strong. Cords thicker than this will not knot tight enough. Also it does not stretch over time as other materials can.
Shipping - I ship out orders extremely fast, within 24 hours or less.
Why Mojo's Beads - The combination of the highest quality Czech beads, 0.5mm C-LON nylon cord, super fast shipping, fantastic customer service, and the great level of passion that I put into my products equates to the best quality product available anywhere worldwide.
