Surf 'n Turf


Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: 4-6 Hours

Based on Mosaic Wrap design by Brittany Ketcham
Sample by Beckie Ten Eyck

Now that Miyuki has made a Half Tila bead, Brittany’s Mosaic Wrap takes on new meaning. In bright, popping colors, Beckie has allowed the 1/2 sized Tilas to shine. By using leather and C-Lon in the same colorway, the pattern and story of the different beads is more pronounced. If you are new to Mosaic Wrap, please watch the video and download our PDF handout. The Project Map below outlines the pattern of beads. Have fun!

Project Map

Please Note: Although many of our older videos and handouts demonstrate the use of a Thread Burner, we no longer feel it is imperative to use when beading. As long as you apply glue to the ending knot and the portion of the leather beneath the knot, you’ll be fine. Allow 3 hours for the glue to dry before carefully cutting excess cord away with flush cutters. And with the C-Lon Silk Wrap protecting the Tuff Cord, your design is secure.
