August 1969 gave birth to the Summer of Love and the famous Woodstock Music and Arts Festival. Jay King and Lyric Culture help commemorate this generational touchstone with a beaded turquoise necklace bearing symbols from that counter-culture awakening. Included on this handcrafted piece is a charm fashioned after the iconic festival logo, which featured a dove perched atop the neck of an acoustic guitar. Slip it on anytime for a fun, fashionable flashback. It’s all groovy, man!
Then New York governor Nelson Rockefeller threatened to send in National Guard troops to break up the Woodstock festival when he saw how huge the crowd was and declared it a disaster area due to the lack of amenities. In contrast, Time magazine called it "The greatest peaceful event in history."
