Made by Miyuki, the oldest and finest manufacturer of Japanese seed beads, Tila Beads are one of the newest bead shapes in the market today. They are two-holed, flat beads nicknamed Tila and they seem to have re-energized seed bead enthusiasts and artisan jewelry makers of all persuasions. They are especially loved by those who ladder with leather, like Brittany does in our Mosaic Bracelet Project. Because Tilas are precision-made and consistent in color and size, you can count on them again and again. We also love how they pair with our Miyuki Seed Beads. The holes are generous and will fit multiple passes with Tuff #1. Available in the distinctive rainbow of Japanese colors and finishes, Tila Beads are unique and we find working with them really rewarding....they just make everything look great.
