Add the Ohm daisy bead, and I think they have one of a hand forming the peace symbol.

And you need a Trollbead Banana bead, or the Biagi bunch of bananas.

Then I would use the simplest Trollbead flower glasses in all different colors.

Hmmm, of all the zillion sterling bead designs I've seen by various brands, I don't remember seeing even one bong bead.

Too cute Smile

Saracat: Perlen has started to stock Ohm and amazon.co.uk also sells quite a few, including the hippie van, not sure about the camper van.

I love the previous VW Van from Thomas Sabo more than the newer one, pitty that I haven't seen this one before because I am a huge fan of VW - the old ones that is

A while back we had a movie here in Holland, called, 'Gooische Vrouwen', one of the ladies drove a VW Van, it was 'airbrushed and painted' all over.

Last night I went to the symphony wich were playing with the "Jeans and Classics" band. They did songs from Woodstock. Fantastic concert and what a fitting thread to continue my awesome night. Peace

I think is much smaller (I bought the LE old one for my daughter,so it's not here in order to measure it) and cheaper :
"Charm pendant "VW Bus"
with lobster clasp
925er Sterling silver
- cream-, yellow-, orange, black- and purple-enamelled
This colourful Hippie VW camper van is cult and simply fun!
Size: 1.7 cm

Article number 0881-007-7
EUR 89.00 incl. VAT "

And another VW camper in a famous picture (actually a set of them made by Don Hunstein).This one of my favorites picture of a young ,happy Bob Dylan:
