XENA BANDS

©2018 Deborah Roberti

Xena Bands  

Use size 8 and 11 seed beads, SuperDuo beads, most any type of size 4mm bead and either Czechmates brick beads, 6x6mm tile beads (including Czechmates brand tile beads) or Czech Rulla beads to make these easy bands that look especially awesome (I think) with beads that have the Czech Picasso coatings. This pattern is fully illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions for a skinny and a wide band.

Stitch: Various

Beads Used: Size 11 seed beads (Miyuki rocaille brand preferred), size 8/0 seed beads (including Czech Matubo 8/0 seed beads), SuperDuo beads, any type of size 4mm beads (bicone crystals, rounds, fire-polished, etc) and either Czechmates brick beads, 6x6mm tile beads (including Czechmates brand tile beads) or Czech Rulla beads.

Approx Finished Size: The skinny band is about a .75 inches wide and the wider band is about 1.5 inches wide; length as desired.

Pattern Price (Downloadable PDF only): $5.00
