Farfalle neons


We present a tutorial for a simple, but highly interesting use of unique PRECIOSA Farfalle™ seed beads. Create an untraditional floral bracelet in bright neon colours by means of a relatively simple stringing on flexible material.

PRECIOSA Farfalle™, unique seed beads from Preciosa Ornela, were first manufactured in 2005 and since that time they have appeared in an increasingly wide spectrum of colours and finishes corresponding to the fashion colours of each given season. In this project, we have used seed beads in neon colours which surround us thanks to the new fashion trends for the upcoming 2013 spring-summer season.

These seed beads, which have a shape reminiscent of butterflies, stand out best when strung on a thread, line or wire so that the seed beads naturally cross and create an interlocking effect Farfalle Sample Cards. This time, we have used an untraditional method. We have strung them on a flexible stringing material and placed them together using the peyote stitch principle so that they cannot overlap one another and remain laid out horizontally next to one another. This method has given rise to the unexpected effect of a compact décor. The combination of two distinctive colours has also allowed the flowers to bloom on the bracelet. Give Farfalle, seed beads manufactured under the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand, a chance to stand out from our large family of seed beads types and shapes.
