The tool used is a revolving punch, the tubing is for plumbing, both can be found in your local hardware store. Please note, the tubing is available in multiple diameters, I liked the 1/4 inch outside diameter and the 3/8 inch outside diameter as their dimensions work well with the pendants.
The pendants were strung through the holes in the tubing made by the punch with thread; I would recommend Nymo® size D Nymo is nylon based and a very strong thread, size D is the heaviest diameter available.
Our ''Types and Sizes of Beading Thread and Stringing Material'' chart and ''How big are the bead holes?'' chart both provide information that will assist you in selecting stringing materials appropriate for the beads you decide to use for your interpretation of the design.
