Do You Know the Farfalle Bead?

These John Bead showroom pieces are just gorgeous!  Before John Bead’s social media program began we had a series of stunning jewelry and jeweled pieces created by one designer for the showroom.  These pieces were designed Adela Kodonova and you can read more about her here.  The bracelet and earrings shown showcase the FARFALLE bead.


Farfalle beads, (Adela refers to them as the sisters of the pellets) are a unique shaped bead in the catalog. We also call them a “bow bead.”


They are available in many colours and I am partial to this special collection called “the Candy mix.”

“Beginners can learn how to use this very clever and special shape of seed beads quickly. With almost no energy and with basic stringing techniques it is possible to create very nice pieces of jewellery ” said Adela.

I love this sample.  Pearls and farfalle beads.  What a wonderful tag team!
