my hippie friend passed that blue glass bead on to me- he has dreads as well.
got the other glass bead from this lady who does tons of glass work in massachusets.
a few weeks ago, i used a box cutter to help tear apart the massive mat in the back of my head- yeah, i know its quite dumb to cut dreads apart, but this was over a years worth of matted crazyness which would not tear to save my life.
from putting a rubberband around 3 dreads matted together, i formed a dread in the back of my head over 2 inches in diameter.
everything is quite dandy.
thanks for looking.
