    This reminds me of the mothers childhood, selling juniper berry seeds necklaces, bracelets and etc. on the side of the highway with her family. Her grandmother and mother,uncles would all do the beading an the kids would do the selling.Now we don't sell much ghost beads because we replace the beads with semi-precious gemstones and silver plated beads.navajo jewelers have family owned beads beside the road hwy 89, 64, and soon on N20.
