This triple-braid necklace made using seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads can be worn as a must-have, popular accessory for daily use, but it is also sure to impress when worn with eveningwear. PRECIOSA ORNELA presents a tutorial on the use of the effective plaiting of seed bead strings.
At first glance, you would be hard pressed to see any connection between this elegant triple-braid necklace and an item which is a typical part of the Czech celebration of Easter. The technique used when plaiting sticks for Easter from fresh willow stems is exactly the same as that used when plaiting seed bead strings. Plaiting eight seed bead strings results in a three-dimensional, square plait. The triple hanging of the plaited strips on elegant metal fixtures with an effective fastening helps to enhance the result. With a little patience and care, you will find that this involves a relatively simple procedure which you can also apply to the plaiting of other types of materials.We wish you much inspiration during your beadwork with seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand.
