Let’s make the world’s longest necklace: “A String of Love and Peace Going Around the World!”
The idea is very simple: dedicate beads to people you care about, and we’ll add a bead for each person you hold dear. They can be family, friends, your helpful neighbor, a caring nurse, your kid’s favorite teacher.
These beads are entered under your name into the Love & Peace Journal™ which you will be able to see once the future Love, Peace & Beads Museum is open.
Maybe you can find your bead on one of the panels below? It would be difficult, as there are over 100 such panels as of today.
Right now it’s about 3,200 feet long. It was started on July 21, 1998 to help a Veteran’s charity. There are already over 15,000 dedicated beads on this necklace, each of them separated by 12 smaller beads.
All beads are first strung and then mounted on individual panels, so you can see them better. In the beginning, they were simply strung in the order they were dedicated. But then, filling a need for online dedications, we decided to add more fun by stringing them into patterns. That’s why you can see a certain theme on most of the panels today.
Once a business sponsors a section with your bead on it, we forward that entire sponsorship fee to local small charities.
Imagine, if people could SEE the love you feel…
…maybe they would understand you better. Or maybe they would simply enjoy catching your good vibes. Maybe they would get inspired.
Your kind thoughts are about to be in the open
They’ll become components of an art installation. They function as messengers of good will, when we take YOUR DEDICATIONS and include them in the museum.
In the Media:
Yay! A little publicity never hurts…
And it sure is fun too. Just look at the little cute beads, drawn by their own graphic designer. Thank you so much to the folks from “Ripley’s Believe It or Not!”®

Thank You to all Supporters!
For the first time, the Neverending Necklace got international exposure through Ripley’s “Believe It Or Not”. It was a long way to this little glimpse of fame, and it is owed to everybody who supported the necklace over the years.
Thank you very much for all your encouragement, beads, volunteer hours, event space and sponsorships.
There is still much work ahead to be done, and together we can send a strong message of love, peace and the unity of all humans!
