NEBULA BAND

©2018 Deborah Roberti

Nebula Band  

Use size 11/0 seed beads, 4mm round beads and either Miyuki Tila beads and MiniDuo beads or Czech Tile beads and SuperDuo beads for some impressive textured bands. The stitch technique looks intricate but once you get the hang of the repeat sequence, you’ll find that it is really quite easy. Clasping instructions are included for single-strand and double-strand clasps. In addition, there’s no reason why you can’t use Half Tila, Quarter Tila or a combination of Tila bead sizes instead of the full-sized Tila beads, or Czech Brick beads instead of Czech Tile beads.

Stitch: Right angle weave and netting, sort of

Beads Used: Size 11/0 rocaille seed beads, 4mm round beads and either Miyuki Tila beads and MiniDuo beads or Czech Tile beads and SuperDuo beads.

Approx Finished Size: About 1.4 inches wide (Tila bead version) and 1.5 inches wide (Tile bead version) to desired length

Black and Iridescent Tila and MiniDuo version:
• About 700 size 11/0 seed beads: Czech/Miyuki #55002 Crystal Czech Aluminium Silver (In hindsight, though, if I were to bead this colorway again, I would use a lighter/smaller seed bead because although the coating on this seed bead is fabulous, it makes the seed bead a bit too fat and there is some bubbling when you lay the bracelet flat, although this disappears as you wrap it round your wrist.)

• About 102 Color1 MiniDuo beads: Jet
• About 66 Color2 MiniDuo beads: Satin Metallic Silver
• About 68 Miyuki Tila beads: Miyuki #4555 Ebony/Iridescent Chrome, also referred to as JetAB at other shops (Note: These Tila beads are fabulous! One side is black and the other is this iridescent color that is really hard to capture in a photo but reminds me of a school of flying fish I saw leap out of the water in Jamaica.)
