Gleam of glittering beads

Bracelet made of PRECIOSA fire polished beads and rocailles 

Allow yourself to be carried away by the color range and the combination of decorations offered by PRECIOSA fire polished beads. This simple tutorial will enable you to produce your own original bracelet in an enormous scale of color shades.

PRECIOSA ORNELA presents a new vacuum treatment which can be used 100 % during the application of a series of five new types of combined vacuum decorations known as Glittery. These metallic decorations in both a gloss and matt finish also take on a new dimension when applied to PRECIOSA fire polished beads.
