I was shopping for my jewelry-making stuffs when I found this string. I thought it would be nice to have something like this for my jewelry-making stuffs. I bought a roll pack of it that contains around 100m. The color I chose was dark brown, and it has a diameter of 1mm. I have to admit that this is the first time I bought string for jewelry-making, since I usually use chains instead. This string is actually a recycled one (as the shopkeeper told me), and I'm not even sure what type of string it is. One thing I know that this string is not nylon, cotton, or polyester one. It has this coarse and non-slippery surface so it's perfect for making necklace or bracelet. But it's not good for making cellular phone accessories (I've tried it but not satisfied with it). The shopkeeper also told me that this is made in China but it's a good made since it has been sold a lot. And for me, this string is reliable and looks strong. I just start making a necklace with it but it hasn't been finished yet. I love working with it so far, and would love to buy this again.
