Took much longer than I hoped and the beads hole was not big enough to pull the marabou I bought through, had to drill it bigger, next time even bigger...but here it is, a simple 2 bead Nightmare....

Very nice job on the jig looks like you’re a natural at it. clap: Tup: The hints of Holo-flash should generate some attention.

The beads that I sell on my site have a 5/64 diameter hole. Here is a link to our beads:
