Bells in the national colors

Preciosa Ornela has created an identical two-hole version of the PRECIOSA Twin Pressed Bead, offered in all the existing glass colors, in order to expand the color range of the popular PRECIOSA Twin two-hole seed beads. Create a sturdy bracelet with little bells sewn around with beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand in red, white and blue. Can you tell which of these colors is a PRECIOSA Twin seed bead and which a PRECIOSA Twin?

Materials & Tools


Metal parts - small silver bells (9x); 6 mm silver rings; silver eye pins; a strong chain; an adjusting chain; a 14 mm snap hook 


A 0.20 mm line; flat nose, snipping and needle nose pliers; a thin stringing needle


Some of the total number of small bells which are hung on the chain using the rings (9x) will sewn around with Twin beads (for example, 6 bells). You can create your own color combinations and ornamentation by means of the use and layout of the chosen colors.

Step 1

String 8x T and tie them into a basic circle. Pull the end of the line back into the hole of the nearest T. Continue according to the drawing (figure no. 1), pass the line through both holes of the nearest T and string 8x T in the second row between the individual T of the first row of the basic circle. Add 2x T between the individual T in the third row. Always continue in the following row by passing the line through both holes of the first T of the given row. In the following rows, only add one seed bead in the gaps between the individual T. Sew around the bells using 10 - 11 rows of T. The list of the Twin in the individual rows:

Row 1: 8x T;
Row 2: 8x T;
Row 3: 16x T; 
Rows 4 - 7 or rows 4 - 8: 16x T;
Row 8 (9): 16x T;
Row 9 (10): 8x T;
Row 10 (11): 8x T, 4x R


Step 2

Place the bell inside at the midway point of creating the rows and then reduce the numbers of T in the following individual rows. Only add the individual T to every second gap. String 8x T and 4x R (figure no. 2) in the final row. Pass the line through both holes of the first T and then pass the line through all of the second holes of the T in the last row, pull the Twin into a circle and finish with a strong knot. Pull the end of the line into the nearest holes and cut. 


Step 3

Attach the sewn-round bells to the chunky bracelet chain in the order of 2x sewn-round bells and 1x undecorated bell using a total of ninebells (6 + 3). Connect a snap hook to the end of the chain using the rings and the adjusting chain ended with a seed bead to the other end.
