I love Tila beads, but had no idea what to do with them. One day, I was playing around with some larger seed beads and a pile of Tila beads, and I realized that I could create a lovely, gently curved necklace by stitching larger beads on the bottom and smaller beads on the top! The vibrant colors of these beads reminds me of the fantastic jewelry seen in the Bollywood classic movies, and when you wear it, it will certainly brighten your mood. This beaded necklace pattern is suitable for a beginner with some understanding of basic off-loom bead weaving, or for an intermediate beader. Enjoy! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should already be comfortable with off-loom beadweaving. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Makes a 20" necklace, including clasp length. Can be easily adjusted.
