This is the next project I plan to work on. I've already trial and errored the tiles once - I tried putting a backing on them like a 'cab' - but didn't like the look-by the time I built up the beads and created the 'cup', you couldn't see much of the tile. So now I'm thinking a right angle weave or net backing ala Marcia DeCoster or Rachel Nelson Smith. Or maybe something simpler, like 'bead wrapping' - creating a freeform net or 'cradle' around them. Lots of possibilities. And then theres the strap to consider....hope to start on this and not just THINK on it more tomorrow.
