In my childhood, this plastic lacing stuff was called gimp.
The recent discovery of some bargain glow-in-the dark gimp in the attic of a place called "The Fun Store" has started an obsession with the stuff. (Not to mention you can snag a box of the stuff at the dollar store.) For my "grown-up" bracelets I used some E 6000 to secure the ends and wove in some large jump rings. The skulls are a Halloween section dollar store find (glow-in-the-dark!) that I "antiqued" with some blue acrylic paint (paint into the crevices, then wipe off with paper towel.)
I re-learned all the stitches with a help from this website. Great resource.http://www.boondoggleman.com/
The pink skully one is my fav, but I'm going to wear the whole collection to a glow-in-the-dark themed 5K run I'm doing tonight.
