Cactus flowers made from PRECIOSA Pip™ and Twin™ pressed beads

PRECIOSA ORNELA presents a relatively simple tutorial which excellently combines the most popular glass beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand.

PRECIOSA Pip™ complies with the current trend for mini beads thanks to its dimensions of 5 x 7 mm. The small projection on this bead, makes it an excellent supplement for PRECIOSA Twin™ two-hole beads and seed beads. Choose a suitable color combination and follow the tutorial to make simple flowers which you can then use in various costume jewelry accessories.
