TILA TWIN BANDS

©2012 Deborah Roberti

A trio of bands made from seed beads, Miyuki Tila beads and Preciosa Twin beads—fully illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions. NOTE: This pattern was written before Half Tila, SuperDuo and Czechmates beads existed. I have updated this version to include examples of bands created with these two-hole beads, including the beautiful band that Bead Street Online made popular on the shop’s blog (http://beadstreetonline.blogspot.com) and in classes.
