Brazilian Fiesta – By Jamie North
“Thank you so much for the opportunity to participate in your 12 Days of Christmas project! It pushed me out of my comfort zone in both colors and shapes – it was fun to play with some yellow and butterflies too. The colors in the collection I receive remind me of the Brazilian flag and since they were selected by Fernando DaSilva, who is from Brazil, it seemed appropriate.”
Jamie also made this bracelet with the leftovers in her bead mix box.

Our latest bead is now in stock.
The PRECIOSA Cornelian Star can be used in the same way as a regular rocaille. Here, we offer a relatively simple tutorial for jewelry made from simple PRECIOSA Cornelian Star balls. PDF to make these star balls linked here.
Woven bracelets made from PRECIOSA Tee™ beads
PRECIOSA ORNELA presents the new PRECIOSA Tee™ pressed bead from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand. Its dimensions of 2 x 8 mm mean that this product complies with the current trends for mini beads. The axially symmetrical flat “T” shape enables the use of vacuum half-coatings with the resulting effect of a full-coating decoration and other popular surface finishes.
The strung beads closely interlock and as such simplify the creation of varied three-dimensional structures and interesting planar structures.
The new Czech PRECIOSA Tee™ bead can also be used in weaving. You can also try this creative technique without the need for an original weaving loom. You can thread a warp onto an old frame or a wooden board where you have tacked in small nails with the necessary spacing. So, try the many interesting options for arranging and connecting these pressed beads in the shape of a letter “T”.
Designer: Helena Chmelíková
