The wide range of shapes, sizes and colors of the beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ range will enable you to create an interesting pattern or color mix.

Red Hot Necklace designed by Helena Chmelíková

Fire polished beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand are an inherent part of the standard range of glass beads offered for the creation of costume jewelry accessories.  The glint of classically faceted beads always provides a luxurious appearance and an elegant impression. The perfect lacy working of the necklace sewn using three sizes of fire polished beads requires experience and a patient and precise approach on the part of the beadworker.

Allow Us to Introduce the New Preciosa Terra Intensive Seed Beads!

2020 begins with the release of a new group of Preciosa Czech beads appropriately named “Intensive.” These 11 eye-popping colors are a designer’s dream come true. The rich and deep hues of blue, pink, green, light green, yellow, red, rose, orange, purple, brown and dark brown
They will give a color boost to any project in very tempting color options.  These deeply radiant colors work beautifully together and with all the other beads you already love.  The terra coating technology from Preciosa means they are more durable with a brilliant lasting finish.
This is just the first wave of seed beads for this collection.
Throughout the year we will be adding strung beads and vials along
with more 10/0 and size 11/0, 8/0 and 2/0.

PRECIOSA Karo™ Bead

Designed by: Romana Tschunkova

We present the new two-hole PRECIOSA Karo™ Seed Bead.  Like PRECIOSA Twin™, this new two-hole seed bead is also made from flat 5 mm wide glass tubes which have been cut into squares. The width of the basic tube and the length of the cut are therefore always the same. This flat, square seed bead is an ideal complement to the twin range. It is excellent when used to create geometric patterns. You can create both highly effective, yet simple, flat brick ornaments or three-dimensional, almost architectural accessories.
