Christmas inspiration from PRECIOSA rocailles and PRECIOSA Pip™

A handmade gift for your nearest and dearest will always bring the greatest joy. Take inspiration from this Preciosa Ornela tutorial and use the beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand to create a cute pendant in the shape of a Christmas tree.

Use the square and brick stitches to make these small trees. The Christmas decorations made here use PRECIOSA Pip™ beads. Assemble the pendant using imitation pearls according to what you have available and to your imagination.
We wish you happy Christmas beadworking.
