Decorative Element from PRECIOSA RippleTM and PRECIOSA Forget-Me-Not Pressed Beads

PRECIOSA ORNELA introduces the PRECIOSA Ripple™ and PRECIOSA Forget-me-not pressed bead under its PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Bead™ brand. A round, 12 mm bead with a centrally placed hole, both sides of its surface ripple softly like the wind on a lake’s surface. Its undulating exterior brings metallic – both matt and shiny – to life. Its center hole makes it perfect for stringing or sewing with seed beads, more delicate fire-polished beads, or in this case with another flat double sided bead in the shape of a forget-me-not.

1. Cut off approximately 20 cm of wire and fold it in half. Pick up 1 R10 and place it in the fold. Add a 1 FMN and 1 Rip to both ends and pull them tightly against the R10 in the fold.

3. With the flat-nosed pliers take both ends of the wire while you hold the Rip with your hand. Twist the wires with the pliers several times, affixing the flower in place.

Flower bouquet

Take several flowers (here we use 10) and put them all together in a ‘bouquet’. Twist all the wire stems together so they hold as a bunch. Cut the ends of the wires together to even the bottom. Use the bunch as a decorative element.

Start winding the floral tape around the wires of the bouquet (you will need approximately 50 cm) near the flowers. After several turns add a safety pin (or brooch clasp) and keep winding the tape around both the pin and the flower stems. Shorten the stems to approx. 9 cm in length and wind the tape around the bottom of the wires. Continue to wind the tape back up to the flowers.
