Four Quarter Tilas = …

Do 4 Quarter Tilas equal a whole TILA bead?

First – there were the Miyuki Tilas – then the Half Tilas, and now, drumroll please – the super thin sliced – Quarter Tila!

The quarter Tilas are 1/4 of the width of the original Tila – so that you can use them as thin spacers or connectors in your beading, use them to create complex geometric patterns, or use them in patterns where moving around a circle (like a bezel) in smaller increments is a bonus!

Miyuki has these lovely, free projects to inspire you too!
