Tila Bead Bracelet Tips:
Before you begin, use a product that will stiffen the ends of the cut polyester cord, such as Fray Block. Also, trim the ends of the cord at an angle with a pair of sharp scissors. These two tips will make stringing the Tila beads MUCH easier, and will save a lot of time. Trust me…I tried it both ways!
Select approximately 5-6 different colors of beads, and perhaps 1-2 varieties of each of the three Tila bead sizes. Don’t stress about which beads you are picking up as you are stringing, but in general, try not to pick up the same exact beads back to back in order to keep the random feel of the project.
Use a thread burning tool, or a lighter to lightly melt the ends of the trimmed cord into the areas that are knotted. Also, use the Fray Block on the ends of the bracelet cord, and the final knots.
