NOTE: Tile Mini beads are rather hard to find. I got mine from Queen City Bead on Etsy. They are 5mm in size (unlike the Czechmates full-sized 6mm tile beads) and they substitute beautifully for Tila beads. They are also more "square" than the 6mm version so they sit together nicely. I love them! They don't come in a whole lot of colors yet but hopefully they will soon.
