Elegance with Twin™

PRECIOSA ORNELA presents another option for the creative use of the unique oval two-hole PRECIOSA Twin seed bead. Using this seed bead it is possible to sew in the round beads in a simple way and to create a very interesting fragment, the repetition of which enables the completion of an elegant costume jewellery set which consists of a necklace, a bracelet, a brooch and a ring. Try this easy and effective method of using the PRECIOSA Twin seed beads!

The Pendants:

Creating the Pendants String the binding wire into the hole of the MCBD. Press both parts of the wire together and twist 3x. Twist the longer part of the wire around a skewer and create an eye. Twist the remainder of the wire around the created neck from the top to the bottom. Then string 20x R and once again twist the wire with the rocailles around the created neck, tighten well, pass the end of the wire under the created spirals and pinch the end of the wire. In this way, prepare 7 tear-shaped pendants: 3 for the necklace, 2 for the pair of earrings and 2 for the brooch.

Figure 3
String 24 T onto the line and tie them into a ring. Pass the line through the second hole of the last T. Tilt the individual T out to the opposite sides and add one T to each of the created gaps and string 12x T in this row. This will give rise to three rows of strung T. At the end of the row, once again pass the line through the second hole in the last T. Then string one R into the gaps between the outer T: a total of 12 beads (figure no. 1, 2 and 3). Finish the row with a strong knot and pass the end of the line through to the opposite edge and once again fill the gaps between the T with 12x R. Before tightening this outer row, place 1x 12mm FPBR into the created opening, tighten the outer line and finish it with a knot. Then pass the end of the line through to the inside row between the T. Pass the eye pin through the hole of the FPBR between the T of the central row and finish with an eye. In this way, prepare 9x beads for the necklace, 5x for the bracelet, 2x for the earrings, 2x for the brooch and 1x for the ring. A total of 19 is therefore necessary for the entire set.

The Necklace:

Connecting Necklace Components
Figure 4

Figure 5
Connect 1x 9mm FPBG on both sides of the sewn-in bead and connect the individual created fragments using the rings. Add 1x 5mm FPBG on each side (a total of 4) at the edges and in the central section of the necklace. Also attach the prepared pendants (figure no. 4) to the rings in the central part of the necklace. Connect one fragment with the sewn-in bead to the central part of the necklace and finish it with a pendant. In order to soften this central section, use the smaller sized 7mm FPBG (figure no. 5). Connect the snap hook and the adjusting chain ended with a pendant.

The Bracelet:

Bracelet As with the necklace, connect the individual fragments of 5 sewn-in beads and end with a snap hook and adjusting chain: do not add the pendants here.

The Brooch:

Brooch Sew the sewn-in beads together at the edge of the opening using 12x R on each side and hang the pendants at its center. Adhere the brooch pin on the back using the hot melt adhesive.

The Earrings:

Earrings Connect one size of FPBG (7 or 9 mm) to each size of the sewn-in bead. Connect the pendant to the larger bead using a ring and connect the earring mechanism on the other side using an oval.

The Ring:

Ring Do not cut one end of the line at one of the beads sewn-in with Twin and continue stringing 1x R, 1x T, 1x R, 1x T until you have strung a total of 17x R and 16x T. Pass the line through the outer hole of one T in the opposite part of the Twin decoration and continue back by adding 1x R between the individual T. As such, string a total of another 17x R. Pass the line through the outer hole of the T one more time, pass it through the circle again and finish with a firm knot which you should then hide between the T and in doing so end the circle forming the ring.
