Introduction: Hardware and Tubing


I found this great plastic tubing at the hardware store and bought several feet of it. I was there to get something more practical but I knew I would use it someday. . . you know the feeling!

At any rate, it finally found a place with some hex nuts and metal plated silver tone beads. The large beads I found for super cheap at a craft store. They are plastic underneath so very lightweight, and I am sure it will get a lot of wear! Total cost was about $15, including the chunky silver tone s clasp, some flex wire and sterling crimp tubes.

I like.... although just a heads up... tubing will discolor in UV light over time... (will turn yellow after a while, especially contact with skin+sweat) . I like the cool, really sweet...

consider upgrading the plastic tube with metal rope.
Cheers

Thanks for the kind words and info- was worried that might happen! I was going to make some similar pieces for friends so will definitely heed your advice and upgrade.
