TRIOS Bead Step by Step

The TRIOS ring component is a fast and easy bead to create.  Once you make one, you’ll make many.  They look wonderful in groups as illustrated in our first free PDF step by step project.  This is an ideal beginner beading project.

The Trios Ring PDF Project was written and designed by Debra Schwartz for John Bead Corp.  Original necklace and bead concept by Lena Gillespie.

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!

We have a tutorial which uses two different sizes of PRECIOSA Candy™.

You can make yourself a luxurious and lovely bracelet.

The range of pressed glass beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand includes the two-hole PRECIOSA Candy™ cabochon with a round base. It is available in three sizes (6, 8 and 12 mm) and in many shades and types of surface finishes. These beads can be connected in different ways, edged and combined with other PRECIOSA beads and seed beads.
