Directions

1. On the eye pin string a spacer, disk bead and a spacer. Trim to a 1/4 with wire cutters, use round nose pliers to form a loop. Repeat 3 times.

That is a great picture. I work for a company that sells industrial o-rings to original equipment manufactures and I just had to see what o-ring jewelry looks like. I love it!
