Whats up everyone, I have 3/4th diameter backer rod dreads but not sure what I really want to use for beads. So I thought I would ask those of you who use backer rod dreads what kind of beads you use? I really like the sets some guys are selling on here but seeing how backer rod is only one size in diameter a lot of those sets come with 3 different sizes b/c they tapered.

Thanks for your help

you should get a pvc pipe or a pipe of some kind at the diameter of your dreads and cut that into sections. if you want, get some sculpy and put details on it, just be carefull with cooking the sculpy because the pvc could melt, metal would work better for customing them. hope this helps, i have only made a couple of dread beads that i threaded 3 dreads into to make it like a hanging pony tail kind of thing and a couple for the front few of dreads to decorate them.
