By Sam Applegate

Inspired by the blue and green lichen plants Sam would find on the granite rocks back home in Colorado, this sample uses a popular mix of Tila Beads to create a stunning hair embellishment . By taking an elastic band and crimping it together with your beaded design, you can create a beautiful and unique headband. Please watch our video, Mosaic Wrap Bracelet (see video insert) to brush up on how to ladder with Tila Beads.
