Diamonds are a girl's best friend!

I recently posted a new tutorial in my Etsy Store: The Diamond Rio Tila Bracelet.  This bracelet would look good created in any colorway, however, I chose a very neutral color scheme for demonstration purposes. A brief description; A 14mm rivoli bezeled with Delica's encased with a tila bead and crystal frame and attached to square stitched bands that have embedded tila beads in diamond shapes in them.
The ends of the bands are embellished with herringbone faux cuffs. This tutorial incorporates several stitches; herringbone, peyote, right angle weave, square stitch and picots. One should be familiar with these stitches before attempting this tutorial. Skill Level: Intermediate. The tutorial includes several illustrations and step by step instructions. This tutorial is in PDF format and is listed in my Etsy store, Lady Abeada for $8.50. You may also purchase it here by using the paypal button located in this post.

Until next time..... Bead True to Yourself!
