My PRECIOSA Beads – The 2021 CONTEST

May – June Contest

This year is dedicated to the seed bead designs in optimist colors under the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand.

The second theme of this year’s competition for the months of May and June is floral. We will focus on beads and seed beads in the pastel colors.
This theme involves a tutorial for a three-pointed flower named Sun Star in pastel seed bead colors. The three-pointed flower is not only suitable as a feature in your costume jewelry, but it can also be included in various decorations.
Try making the three-pointed flower and then incorporate it into your own design.  The contest is now open and finished designs need to be sent to Preciosa by June 20, 2021.

The Spring Sun flower component project PDF is here.

How to enter the competition?

Make your own magnificent colorful design that includes a component made according to a PRECIOSA tutorial. Every amateur and professional designer gives a piece of themselves to each of their projects and this makes them original designs. You can therefore add any other beads and seed beads from our range to the basic project.

Win a pack of beads and seed beads!

Preciosa  will give prizes for designs made using seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand with an emphasis on the quality of the workmanship. A further condition is flawless photographic documentation and the expansion of a basic component from a PRECIOSA tutorial into your own original piece of bead art.

Your reward will be 3 main prizes issued every two months. Three winners will receive a package full of a surprise range of PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™, including our latest products.  What’s more, we will also give prizes for every design that meets the conditions, because we really want to make everybody happy. We will announce the winners in the last week of every even-numbered month.


John Bead Corporation, as a sponsor of the contest, will also give winners a special prize – wholesale shopping spree ($500, $250 and $250) on our website.

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.

How to enter the competition?

This year, entries must create a design that includes a component made according to a PRECIOSA tutorial released every two months. We’ll be linking those PDFs to our social media posts and in our private Facebook group linked here.

We will be posting regular links to the contest over the next 12 months.
