Preciosa Czech Bead Giveaway

Posted by in all posts





 UPDATE:  Entries Now Closed.


Preciosa Ornela is one of the largest manufacturers of Czech glass and glass seed beads.  I have been buying Preciosa fire polish beads for a long time for use in my wrap bracelets because of their unique finishes.  They seem to reflect and absorb light at the same time to create a gorgeous luster.


I love how they coordinate with real gemstones.  This is a picture of my best selling set of bracelets.  The beads in the top wrap bracelet are Preciosa’s faceted round shape beads.  I have these beads in quite a few different colors and finishes.

Preciosa Ornela contacted me last month and asked me if I would like to receive some of their seed beads and mixed glass beads for a giveaway on my blog.   (Gorgeous beads headed my way across the ocean – YES PLEASE )!   They sent a  generous amount of beads, to say the least, so I am happy to share some of those with you in the form of a Preciosa glass bead giveaway.

This set of beads contain a variety of seed bead sizes, hole sizes, finishes, colors and styles including the new twin hole seed bead.  There is also a nice mix of larger glass beads in all sorts of shapes.  This collection has a juicy burst of colors which fit well with Pantone’s hottest color for Spring and Summer  – Tangerine Tango.


Update for clarification:  There are no faceted rounds in this package,  like in my bracelet above.  You can Google Preciosa faceted round beads to find different suppliers for the faceted round shape.


You can find out more about Preciosa’s Czech beads by visiting their website or connect with them on Facebook.

Winner to be announced Thursday, May 24th, 2012


I’m off to the local InterGem show to stock up on a few essentials tomorrow before I head to a metal workshop called “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Saw” ?   This is one of Cindy & Jeanette’s Art Bliss Workshops taught by Richard Salley.  Should be fun!   I’ve had a metal saw for almost a year that I’ve hardly touched.  This workshop was made for me!

Enjoy your weekend!
