CzechMates QuadraTile and Swarovski Bicone Necklace with Brass Chain
designed by Becky Bacus
Skill LevelBeginner
Time1-3 hours
Approximate Size28 Inches

I had fun coming up with a pattern that creates a fun texture out of QuadraTile shapes and bicones.

  • Instructions
  • Supplies

CzechMates QuadraTile beads feature a fun square shape and four stringing holes, providing endless beading possibilities. Becky used them with shining Swarovski Bicone accents in this unique textured look. The beads stand out as a focal in her necklace, but you could also try this technique to make a matching bracelet.
