5x5mm Japanese TILA Beads

Virginia Blakelock is offering a loomwork class at the 2012 Bead and Button Show called "TNT" Loomwork, which stands for "Toobs and Tilas".
This is a great opportunity to make a beautiful Deco-style necklace and learn ways of using the new Tila beads and the new Toob findings.


"TILA" beads are about 5mmx5mm square, and just thick enough to accomdate TWO holes through them. Yes, they look like tiles, but you can weave with them!
