Weave a fantastic faceted beaded bead with two different types of Tila beads and sparkly crystals! The Half Tila Technocluster beaded bead features both the original and the Half Tila two-hole beads in a self-supporting, layered beaded bead, which is woven using a unique construction technique in the geometry of a dodecahedron (check out my free Candy Dodecahedron pattern for an introduction to dodecahedron beaded beads). A rivoli crystal sits in the middle of each of the 12 sides of the beaded bead for extra sparkles reflected off the faces of the Half Tila beads.
This challenging beading pattern is perfect for the advanced beader who would like to take their skills to the next level. The pattern starts with the matching earrings, which shows how to use Half Tila beads in a unique way to bezel a rivoli crystal. The pattern continues with instructions on how to weave a basic dodecahedron beaded bead, which offers an accessible introduction into the geometry of this design. Finally, the pattern concludes with instructions on how to make the cornerstone piece of this set, the completed Half Tila Technocluster beaded bead. This tactile design makes a stunning solo pendant, and several of these beaded beads can be comined together into a phenomenal statement necklace.
The Half Tila Technocluster beading pattern includes:
