Moreover, the shiny neon colors are according to current fashion trends and are sure to light up the days of spring.
 We wish you pleasant spring beadwork with beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand.


Step 1

The chick consists of four triangles. Sew the triangles using a flower pattern. First, sew 6 flowers and then add one less in each successive row. Continue the procedure until there is only one at the top; sew the line in at the top (figs. 1a, 1b, 1c and 1d).

Step 2

Create the eyes by stringing a neon rocaille onto a needle and line and threading it through the sewn surface in a suitable position. String a black rocaille and thread the needle and the line back through it and tie a firm knot. Use the same procedure for the second eye; sew the eyes before sewing up the entire chick (fig. 2).


Step 3

Sew the triangle together and create a pyramid. Sew a Twin into the points, tie the points together: only the comb made from pink Twins is not tied up (fig. 3a). When sewing the sides, don’t forget the beak and the wings made from Twins; sew the pyramid (the chick) together with a neon rocaille (fig. 3b).
