Soutache bracelet made from PRECIOSA Pellet™ seed beads

A practical pressed bead, PRECIOSA Pellet™, whose shape enables it to supplement many varied types of beads and seed beads, has been presented in Preciosa Ornela’s new collection for the upcoming season in the second half of 2013. The so-called interlocking effect is enabled by the central slimming of the glass cylinder in the 4/6 mm size which means that the individual beads interlock precisely during a simple stringing.

These beads are especially an excellent partner for both sizes of the PRECIOSA Farfalle™ seed beads or for the new PRECIOSA Thorn™ bead. PRECIOSA Pellet™ is also ideal for use in techniques such as braiding. Braid was once abundantly used to decorate uniforms or folk costumes. At present, the popularity of braid or soutaches in the production of original pieces of jewellery and decorations is on the increase. The PRECIOSA Pellet™ bead excellently supplements the best selling braid size at a width of 3 mm.

Try out the braiding technique in connection with this universal bead and produce a simply, basic soutache meander.

We wish you much adventurous inspiration when discovering further combinations and options using the beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand.
