Thread: Neon strings you weaved - anyone remember what they are called?

    Default Neon strings you weaved - anyone remember what they are called?

    Hiya,

    Its bugging me and my workmates, what were the strings called, made out of nylon (looked like cut up tights) that were usually neon. you could get huge bags of them for not very much money and you weaved them on your fingers to make things like bracelets and necklaces and things like that? Any help would be very much appreciated, so we could go back to doing our jobs instead of searching for these damn things!

    Thanks

    Hannah

    sounds like what we called "friendship strings" but this would have been in the early 90's, as I use to make them with my niece, will look into some more

    Come across this whilst looking for Steve's owl laser gun!

    Neon Leon

    Description
    It was a kit that came with various neon-colored plastic items to make jewelry and accessories with. There were long flexible rope-like pieces that you could twist together and bend into necklaces, bracelets, and headbands. They glowed in the dark.

    Wow, they were way
