The 2021 CONTEST
After last year, we all deserve an extra portion of positive thinking and creativity! So let’s surround ourselves with our favourite article – seed beads in varied, happy and optimistic colors.
Seed beads teach us to be patient and they draw our thoughts away from our everyday worries. So let’s indulge in some seed bead therapy!
Preciosa has prepared a year-long contest for you My PRECIOSA Beads #mypreciosabeads, where we will focus on seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand in the happiest colors.
During March and April, we will be focussed on the Naturals collection and the contest information and news is available here.
