I let my beautiful beads sit on my table for a while, trying to decide what I wanted to do with them. One day I was checking out Whimbeads.com and discovered that they have a pattern in the classroom section of their website that uses the Tila beads. There are some great patterns that are free and available for download on the site. The newest pattern is for a RAW bracelet with fringe using the Tila beads. I downloaded it and started trying to decide what colors to use with my wonderful beads. I've been using a lot of gray lately, so I finally chose pewter 11's and 15's, black diamond crystal bicones,and for an accent color I chose peacock 15's and Pacific opal bicones. I'm so very pleased with the results.
I've fallen in love with fringe made using the new beads! I know I'll be using them for fringe again. If you want to try something different these are the beads to try. They aren't inexpensive, but I think they're worth the cost.
Thank you for spending some time reading the blog today. I hope you have a wonderful, and creative day.
