Designed by Heather Kingsley-Heath
MilliPilli is a deliciously textured tubular bangle designed to show off the lovely new Rizo® beads. This project has several variations to explore. Created especially for Stitchncraft.
This design came about as a celebration for the new Rizo beads. Several designers were invited to try these beads and it was love at first sight! The Rizo is a grain of rice made in glass with a hole through one end. The tapered end makes it the perfect companion to seed beads of varying sizes and guarantees that it will sit securely within both simple and elaborate beadwork. Because of the slightly elongated shape, it can be tricky to incorporate, to begin with. As you work just keep telling yourself it is just another size 8 bead and you will soon get the hang of it.
