My Czech Beads 2020

As we do every year, we have once again prepared a year-round competition for Czech beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand.

A 2-Hole Bead Contest

According to numerology, 2020 is the year for creative skill and activities. And that is a challenge for all people of a creative bent! As such, we have proclaimed 2020 as the year of two-hole beads and seed beads.
If, like us, you are a fan of two-hole beads and seed beads, you will have plenty to keep you occupied!

In 2020, there will be many things to make according to projects by well-known designers. Every two months, we will announce a project using two-hole beads or seed beads and you will have 1.5 months to send us the design according to the given project with an emphasis on the quality of the workmanship and perfect photographic documentation. The colour combinations and the size of the beads and seed beads will be up to you. Moreover, you can also take the project up a level and expand it into an original collection.

We will choose the 3 nicest products from the sent designs and will send the winners a package full of beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand. Moreover, we will also reward all the sent designs with a gift, because we appreciate the efforts of all the creative individuals who participate!

So, what do you say? Will you give it a go with us? The first project was published in February. on 1st February 2020 and the deadline for the first round was 25 March.

The second projekt is Karolina necklace designed by Kerrie Slade. The closing date for the second project designs will be 25th May 2020.

Send your design to the comments section of the "2hole Beads Contest" album on our Facebook profile at or to our Instagram profile @preciosa.ornela with the hashtag #2holebeadscontest.
