Amazing Farfalle Beads

I came across some great pieces using Farfalle Beads!

BERNADETT VARGA’s blog AGABEN, showcases the designers beautiful work. The farfalle bead , also known as Bow beads or peanut beads by some, have an interesting shape that allows the beads to fit into one anothers curves. This interesting shape gives way for endless amount of possibilities. Whether strung in a simple row or sewn in an elaborate stitch there’s no wrong way to farfalle.

Bernadett Varga’s pieces look elegant and finely crafted. The necklace below looks like such a solid construction using the crochet technique.

Necklace with Farfalle Beads

The round earring balls make me think of how many possibilities you can come up with using the farfalles.  Bernadett uses crochet techniques to create the jewellery and each piece is more interesting then the next.

She also has many seed bead variations creating balls and long necklaces with interesting shapes. I love her combination of colors and the way she combines glass beads with seed beads and crystal bead accents.

The matte seed bead combination and transparent seed bead is great on this ring. The seed bead creation is nicely mounted on a base metal ring. Such an elegant yet showy look.

We also have sample necklaces in our showroom made by a designer from the Czech Republic; Adella Kodonova. The jewellery combines farfalles, crystals, pearls and seed beads. These pieces have more movement and you can see the shape of the farfalles a little more. The necklace is full of sparkle and glitz. The focal point with the pearls is beautifully done with crystals bursting out. I love the weight of the farfalles and the pearls, it’s a true statement piece.

I love this look because really you can combine any type of bead in any variation of color and twist them around. You can make it as chunky or minimal as you like! All you need is a little black dress and this necklace!
