........ I was hoping to grab the bead chain today but no luck.......


Vicente,

If you're in need of bead chain for eyes, Home Depot sells in at least two sizes and colors. It's in the electrical department. I just took a look. 3 feet for $6, brushed nickle. Much cheaper than specialty shops.
Just a Jerk at one end of the line hoping for a jerk at the other end...

In general Ive always used old time hardware stores for the various sized bead chain I need... buying it both by the foot and by the spool when needed.
The largest size I use was always called plumbers chain by older hardware guys. These days you see it used mostly for the pull chains on big vertical blinds.

Much, much cheaper than what fly shops sell - and the exact same stuff.

Very nice...

Rarely has the introduction of new species (almost 40 years ago now) been so successful...
