Preciosa Twin Flowers

In order to expand the color range of the popular PRECIOSA Twin™ two-hole seed bead, Preciosa Ornela has created an identical two-hole PRECIOSA Twin Pressed Bead version which is offered in an unlimited range of all existing glass colors. If you have not yet had the opportunity to use PRECIOSA Twin, PRECIOSA ORNELA now offers you a set of instructions for creating custom jewellery accessories from simple flowers which are made by stringing seed beads and beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads range. Start with the simple stringing of PRECIOSA Twin with interspersed rocailles. You can also extend it to make a necklace. You can make an entire floral collection from these simple flowers: earrings, a ring or a brooch. The range of color finishes will enable you to use your creativity and to produce your own color combinations. We wish you many creative ideas when working with Czech seed beads.

End of Materials List
Step 1
Figure 1
String 10x T onto the needle with the thin line or the nylon thread, move them to the end of the line and tie them into a ring with a strong knot (figure no. 1).
Step 2

Figure 2
String 1x R6, pass the needle with the line between the T (figure no. 2).
Step 3


Pass the needle and the line through both holes of the nearest T from the initial ring. Then add 10x R9 and pass the line through the second hole in the T. The basic flower is thus created. Pull the line between the seed beads and finish with a knot which is then hidden in the seed bead hole. Make nine flowers in this way and use them to assemble the bracelet. The basic length of the bracelet without the fastening is ca 17cm.
Step 4
Figure 4



Add 2x R9 between the individual flowers and 7x R9 at both ends (figure no. 4).
Step 5
Figure 5

Tighten the bracelet by once more passing the line through all of the outer seed beads (figure no. 5).
Step 6


Attach the metal rings for fastening. It is possible to use the flowers to create a complete custom jewellery set with a necklace, a ring, a brooch and earrings.
