DIY Beading with Tila Beads

Happy New Year everyone! Did you miss me, your friendly blogger from Handmade Jewelry Club? I missed everyone! I took some time off for awhile and spent it with family. Well, that is what the Holidays are about, but now it’s back to work again. For my first post this year, I’ll be sharing free beading tutorials with Tila beads.

Tila beads are two-holed beads nicknamed Tila. These beads are a product of Miyuki. With two holes these beads are great for doing ladder stitch. Since ladder stitch requires passing of thread several times into the beads’ hole Tila beads gives the thread enough room to pass several times.

Tila beads are also flat and so they are great for making leather wrapped bracelet like Chan Lu bracelets.
