Why Waste Good Materials?

I had a lot of leftover pieces of nylon coated beading wire in three different metallic colors, which I couldn't just throw away. I kept them in my drawer until I had an idea of using them.

Jewelry made with metal hoops is very fashionable now, so here is my idea:
I braided three pieces of wire in 3 different colors, strung some bicone beads and rounded it into a hoop, closed by using a crimp bead.
I then made few more, each one in a different diameter and connected to another one, until I had a long piece. Finally I removed the sharp wire edges with a small side-cutter.
That's it – I have a very light long fashionable lariat!

I think it worth not to throw away good leftovers, don't you?
