I can hardly keep track of all the new beads coming into the market in the past months... One of the most recent bead produced is the Tango bead - a triangle Czech glass bead that has two holes in uneven lengths. The new bead is now presented for the first time in the To Bead True Blue show in Tucson, Arizona USA, exclusively by Bead Master.
The unusual placement of the holes of the bead makes it challenging to design with, but at the same time it opens up more possibilities for unusual designs...
I came up with two bracelet designs with this bead, one of them is the Dragon Tail bracelet - a unisex bracelet design. You can combine the Tango beads with seed beads only for a bracelet for men, or use sparkling Swarovski crystals for the feminine version of the bracelet.
Here is Dragon Tail bracelet free tutorial. Enjoy! *

The tutorial for the other design I came up with using the Tango beads - Geometric Games bracelet, will be available soon.
