These funky, brightly colored rubber beads are made from recycled tires. The soft stretchy little spikes are just plain fun to touch! These beads are wildly popular in teen and young adult fashion. They look great as earrings and bracelets, and body jewelry such as belly button rings or eyebrow rings. Aside from teens and young adults, these fun little beads are also growing in popularity with fishermen. Yes that's right. Brightly colored rubber beads have proven to be a valuable addition to any tackle box. Just slide the bead over the hook eye to both protect the knot and to attract fish with its bright colors and intriguing texture. If you are or know a fisherman, you should also pick up a book on tying glass bead flies.
