Long Island NY

$14.95 Sale price

Every Bead is made with the Sand gathered from Long Island, NY!

Long Island consists of 4 counties - Suffolk, Nassau, Kings (Brooklyn), and Queens. ... The rest of the island did not want to be and so was not included in the Greater New York City Act of 1898. In fact, even part of Queens County split off to avoid becoming part of NYC and instead became the new Nassau County.  In 1964, novelist Peter Benchley read a newspaper article about a 4500-pound great white that had been captured near Long Island—and inspiration struck. “I thought, what would happen if one of these things came into a beach and wouldn’t go away?” Benchley later said. The thought lingered, and Jaws—by far his most successful book—was born.

Love these

My son and I are both HUGE fans of earth bands. We buy the ones from places we have been. We were in Long Island 2 years ago for Mother's Day and it was such a special weekend. We needed a way to remember.
