Metallic Pistachio Squared

About this design:

I've been searching for the perfect beads to go with some metallic green leather cord I had. My local bead shop got in a huge new selection of tila beads and I found these beauties. I added the metallic Toho beads add an extra zip and splash of color.


2 hole tila beads, Toho seed beads, 1.5 mm metallic leather cord K.O. thread antiqued brass button.
