Candy bracelets

Flexible bracelets made from the two-hole cabochon known as PRECIOSA Candy™

We would like to acquaint you with the new PRECIOSA Candy™ pressed bead from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand. Preciosa Ornela presents a two-hole low cabochon with a round base with a diameter of 8 mm. Thanks to its shallow curvature, the lower section is highly suitable for use in embroidery and for use in combination with PRECIOSA seed beads and beads. 

You can choose from an extensive range of surface finishes on the new PRECIOSA Candy™ two-hole bead. Arrange the low two-hole cabochons and add rocailles in suitable colors to create a suitable bracelet which is sure to become one of your favourites.

Designers: Martina Jůnová, Helena Chmelíková

Procedure:

One row of PRECIOSA Candy™ - a two-row stringing

Step 1:

You need 14x C and 112x R10 for a simple flexible bracelet at a standard length of 17.5 mm. Thread approximately 10 cm of the fine nylon line through the eye of the thin stringing needle and connect both ends with a knot. Thread the flexible stringing material (Opelon, Lycra...) through the loop made from the fine nylon line and start stringing 1x C, 4x R10, 1x C, 4x R10... String all the 14x C and 56x R10 in this manner. Straighten the seed beads and beads, tie off the stringing material using three strong knots which have been well tightened and cut off the ends with a 2-3 mm reserve.
