Linked set made from PRECIOSA Oblongs
This tutorial provides a suggestion on how to use one of the less familiar seed bead shapes, PRECIOSA Oblongs.
The beads are connected using the lesser known linking technique. Prepare the "crosspieces" and thread another eye pin through the side wire loops. You can also use this simple connection principle with other types of beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ product range.
