Necklace with a tassel and a sewn ball made from PRECIOSA Candy™

Try using the PRECIOSA Candy™ bead and create a piece of modern jewelry with a sewn ball and a bead tassel.

We present the PRECIOSA Candy™ two-hole low cabochon with a circular base with a diameter of 8 mm. The shallow rounding in the lower section simplifies the process of sewing around the bead, linking the beads together or joining them with seed beads and other selected beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand.
