No Smoking Please!
To sort or not to sort, that is the question...
The answer is NOT to sort.
If you have need of one of these, they are very easy to make.
All you need is an assortment of beads, jewelry findings, some head pins and some coated wire.
To put them together, you need E-6000 or some other jewelry glue, some wire cutters, and an exacto knife to strip the ends of the wire.
I found this bunch of wire at a garage sale. All different colors of stripes and perfect for this project.
The hose is simply a piece of the wire with a rice bead for the mouthpiece and any bead that works for the other end to glue to the middle of the pipe.
I went and put "hookah pipes" in the MSN search and poked images to make sure that I had it right. There are a LOT of examples there. Pinterest has a lot too. MSN leads you to those.
I am going to use one in Daisy's house. The other two will be sold in the Steampunk store.
They are really fun to make. I am going to go back and do a few more for the store, with gears and other oddments.. Some have hoses for more than one person to smoke at a time...
We have the kids coming over in a little while for BBQ. Enough of this nonsense! I had better go bake the beans.
See you tomorrow.
