    I know there are those that wear them and get hardons for them on tumblr, but I've never been able to go for it personally.

    I'll wear this with well worn denim and OCBD shirt. Beads are from Ghana. I get them at the flea market for $5 full price or much less if I'm ready to haggle. The guy has a ton of them in all colors and styles. They remind me of the necklaces we wore in the late 60's/early 70's with our chambray work shirts or T shirts and jeans. If a girl liked you she made one for you.

    This is macrame, woven by Mexican hippies on the beach in Sayulita Mexico. They have the most wonderful color combinations. Perfect for jeans and a well worn OCBD. I think they were like $3 each. I bought a dozen and gave them away to my friends. They all loved them.

    Do you wear the Ghana beads with the macrame beads from Mexico?

    No. I never wear more than one at a time although a few have two or three wraps to them.

    Some of us actually are Buddhists, you know. It always amuses me seeing people wearing prayer beads as fashion. ;)

    I think I used to wear both wrist and ankle bracelets when I was a 19-year old hippie... it would seem rather too much of an affectation now, unless someone gave me one as a present, or it had some special meaning. That's just me.

    All those bracelets would look better if you dress like or are a surfer or a hippie.

    My wife buys a lot of them when we o to Thailand

    I like to leave some ambiguity to the question of my iGentness, so I've passed on the bracelets, felt flowers, etc. But sometimes they can look good.

    Usually that time is before they are adopted widely.
