Tila Beads

I purchased some Tila Beads when they first came out.  For those of you that don't know they are 5 mm square and are double drilled.  The ones I purchased were metallic coated.  I just loved how they look but for some reason I just couldn't make something with them.   It was like a mental block.  From time to time I would bring them out and play with them, broke a few and put them away.  Well this weekend I decided once and for all I would make a bracelet.  I was planning on making it with wire so I cut pieces of wire to the desired length and started laying it out.  It went well at first then the pressure started breaking the beads so I ended up making it using the Fireline like I do in beadweaving.

This is what I came up with!  Do you like it?   It has the appearance of metal and earthy feel.
