I thought the guitar string idea was brillant and the Epilady cracked me up,
LOL.  Thanks to Diane for providing the real thing!

Thanks for that idea.  I'll use them that way and be sure to use cutters
other than my Lundstroms since I'm not sure of the metal.

I bought a bunch of spring (wound metal) necklaces and bracelets from
FMG a few years ago.  Anodized aluminum, maybe 2 mm diameter,
flexible?

I also got beads and spindles made of wound wire that fit onto these.
They could be stretched for a different, less compact look.

Just fine, but stacks of them aren't stylish any more, so I've been
wearing the necklaces with one (or three or five or 2N+1) beads with
biggish holes.  I still stack the bracelets up, with lots of the
little wire beads, though.

Has everyone noticed that the stretch crystal bracelets are passe'
now?  Pity, because they were so easy to make.

I don't see many omega chains and slides around, either.
