TILA BANDS

©2011 Deborah Roberti

Tila Bands

This pattern is fully illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions for two Miyuki Tila bead bracelets: One using seed beads, bugle beads and Tila beads and a second using seed beads, round beads and Tila beads. Note, I use 4mm tigereye beads for the “round bead” but any 4mm bead will work: bicone crystals, fire-polished beads, round druks, etc. In additional, the new 5x5mm Czech two-hole Mini Tile beads should also work great as a substitute for Miyuki Tila beads. It's a very versatile pattern.

Stitch: Ladder stitch, sort of

Beads Used: Size 11 seed beads, 6mm bugle beads (although you can use any length bugle beads you wish to get the band width you want), 4mm round beads (or any size 4mm bead) and Miyuki Tila beads

Approx Finished Size: Each bracelet about an inch wide to desired length
