Huge Preciosa-Ornela Czech Beads Giveaway

By on Monday, March 19, 2012 230 Comments

Remember my post on Preciosa Onela's new twin bead line that now starting to show up on this side of the pond?  These double hole beads add so much more potential to beaded projects as shown in the drop dead gorgeous bead work tutorials I linked there.


Well, Preciosa-Ornela really want beaders to get excited about these Czech beads so they are offering a huge collection of beads (shown above)  including the twin beads for one lucky winner of this giveaway. Isn't it just a delightful blend of colors?

They also sent me an equivalent collection in teal blue for review.  I wasn't kidding when I said huge.  I put the bag on my scale and it is more than 1 lb!



One of the best things about Czech beads are their color range and bead finishes. The collection included opaque, color-lined, silver-lined, metallic and pearly seed beads. The larger farfalle beads are at the bottom right.


I wondered what the twin beads could do for other jewelry makers who are not into bead work. So I experimented and here are the results.  The double hole beads can indeed act as tiny connectors in wire designs. However, if you are going to do the same, use 22G or finer wire. 20G wire does not go through most twin beads.

I made the upside down triangle form using a Toblerone chocolate box as a mandrel as mentioned in my triangular jewelry tutorial post.  I hammered the frame flat before wiring in lengths of beads.  The clear twin beads were added in intervals so that I could feed random short lengths of scrap sterling silver through them. After curving these wire scraps, I just wired them to the frame. As you can see, the extra wire bits filled in the gaps.


Here is a close-up to show what I mean : 


Although you could omit the twin beads as you can see from the triangular project I did before which also used the Preciosa-Ornela beads.


Another design I attempted was the double wired  tear drop pendant which also put the greyish twin beads to good use :


(I must add that this was one of the most difficult photo shoots I have ever done - a lot of silver and transparent beads make it challenging). It would have been next to impossible without the Modahaus setups I have.)

Giveaway
Now all the above projects barely made a dent into the large collection of beads so it will keep a beadaholic happy for quite a while.

    119. Ok, giveaways like these always bring everyone out of the wordwork, including me! I wanted to tell you that I *love* the work you did connecting wire pieces with the twin beads. I've already played a bit with the twins, but I am mainly a beadweaver and I don't think I would ever have thought to connect pieces of wire in that way! Since I am really trying to incorporate more metal into my repertoire, I think using the twin beads would be a help to me as a novice -- the beads would act as a guide to help me get my wires to stay where I want them to be! Thanks for posting about that and pointing out such beauties, and taking the time out to get such great photos despite the difficulties. I am definitely pleased to have that idea floating around in my mind. Whether or not I win the giveaway.
      Um, of course I'd still like to win ;-) I need to encourage my family to stop calling the spare room the spare room and start calling it what my brother named it when he stayed over in that room... He called it 'the bead room' and I definitely want to encourage my family to catch on to that. More beads could only help me in that endeavor!! Thanks again for all your work.
