Bracelets made using PRECIOSA Tee™ and PRECIOSA Pellet™ beads
The strung beads PRECIOSA Tee™ closely interlock and as such simplify the option of creating varied structures and of combining them with other beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand.
We would like to introduce the new Czech PRECIOSA Tee™ pressed bead. The axially symmetrical, flat "T" shaped bead with dimensions of 2 x 8 mm enables the application of all the available surface coatings. Thanks to its shape, PRECIOSA Tee™ is an excellent supplement to the PRECIOSA Pellet™ bead. Try the excellent universal utility of the this bead in different types of stringings, sewing techniques, crocheting and kumihimo and its easy combination with other Czech beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ product brand.
