Charlotte bead tassels

Difficulty: 2
Technique: stringing

Earrings made from Cut Rocailles

The miniature cut seed beads known as Charlotte beads stand out from the other cut seed beads in the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ range. This name is given to cut rocailles in the size designated as 13/0. The reflections from the two cut surfaces contribute to the luxurious appearance of the tassels, which need not only be used to create extravagant earrings.
