Love two-hole beads? Then you will love the new four-hole bead - the QuadraTile. Be among the first to create this elegant mystery project using the CzechMates QuadraTile released in Tucson in February 2015. This class was inspired by Starman's release of the new CzechMates QuadraTile Bead. Worked in an adaptation of square stitch, the QuadraTile bracelet has depth created by layering the QuadraTile andthen embellishing with O Beads and seed beads. What makes it unique is the way the QuadraTile layersadd dimension and depth.
