Those were the times of peace and love, alternative dress, hippies, movie stars going wild and a big publicity boost for Native American jewelry from Arizona Highways magazine and other publications. Although many celebrities began wearing Native American jewelry in the late 60s and early 70s, perhaps two of the most influential were Jim Morrison of the Doors and Cher. During the late 1960s when the Doors were at the height of their fame, Jim Morrison bought a concho belt from Wayne and Irma Bailey when they were traveling in California. Quintana likely made the belt in 1966 or 1967 when he worked for Irma Baileys Indian Art & Pawn on the Old Town Plaza in Albuquerque. As a result of such publicity, everyone wanted some of the action!!
