super cheap and very nice wishbone beads

just wanted to share this serendipity that happened a while back

I was in K mart in the bath section and came across these stainless steel beads
they are shower rings - and they have perfect wishbone beads built in
I paid 5$ for a set of ten and each one has 5 beads on them - so 50 beads for 5$
but you just take some of the 1.7mm - super tight and stiff dyneema - put it through the bead and tie it off - I use pliers to make it super tight - then put either super glue - (in this case I used some epoxy I had mixed ) and put it on the knot for insurance - (so it won't slip ever)
then you just use them
these are so perfect -they are neither too big or too small - and the hole is perfect for the dyneema
enjoy
