Preciosa Bow (TM) Bead

Thanks to its slight curve, the Preciosa Bow (TM) bead can be combined with smaller beads, seed beads, fire polished and pressed glass beads. 
 
It works wonderfully with the large Preciosa Candy(TM) bead.  
Connecting two beads can result in a magic eye or an interesting X shape.  There are thousands of design possibilities!
Preciosa Bow (TM) begins shipping in February!

Wishing You A Wonderful Holiday With Betsy John!

“While I take inspiration from the past, I live for the future.” R Reagan

We associate this quote with our cofounder and family matriarch Betsy John.  Betsy continues to inspire us and this “ninety-something” lady influenced a very special portrait series this summer. 
 
You are the first to see one of the special photographs we created featuring Betsy John and some of the amazing designer jewelry in our collection.  We’ll be sharing many more next year.
 
2018 is going to be a very special year for us, Betsy and for our wonderful customers.  We wish you a festive and happy holiday season and a truly Happy New Year.
 
 
Mike John, Daniel John
and the entire John Bead Company
