Topics: Bead Caps/Charm
I want to make a bracelet which will hold short animal hair or pieces of fine colored thread. The hair could be packed in a tube like arrangement that could be sealed up to keep the hair from falling out. A cap and chain would be fastened on both sides with a toggle clasp. I can't seem to find a plastic or other material that is flexible enough to bend and hold the thread or hair and end caps.
Flexible tubing can be found at a hardware or pet store. Louise McClure did a bracelet which incorporates a charm exactly like you describe.
