Sewn earrings made from PRECIOSA Candy Oval

We have prepared the following project for luxurious black earrings as an example of how to use PRECIOSA Candy Oval beads.

We have expanded our range of pressed two-hole beads. We now offer PRECIOSA Candy Oval, a bead with an oval shape and with a distinctly rounded face and an almost flat rear. The holes pass through the shorter dimension of the bead. The beads are available in three sizes, specifically 4 x 6 mm, 6 x 8 mm and 10 x 12 mm.
