Create NeoPixel Strips

Mark silicone coated wire every inch  (or your desired spacing interval).

Trim wires to length and strip both ends.

Using a third hand tool, tin the pads on the pixels and use tweezers to solder bits of small wire in place.

Continue adding wires and NeoPixels to make strands of seven to eleven pixels.

Pay attention to the arrows on your pixels, they should all face the same direction!
