Narrow rectangle Half TILA (pronounced Tee-la) beads with a Picasso finish have dual beading holes and color coordinate with flat square TILA® beads. They are ideal for joining strands together, as spacer bars and to create designs with checkerboard and weaving patterns. The swirled effect gives each bead the look of marble--or the pattern of a Picasso painting. Made by Miyuki of Japan, makers of popular Delica® seed beads, TILA® beads are uniform in size and shape. A 40-gram package can contain approximately 1,000 beads.
