Preciosa Necklace Project - Elegance with Twin
PRECIOSA ORNELA presents another option for the creative use of the unique oval two-hole PRECIOSA Twin™ seed bead. Using this seed bead it is possible to sew in the round beads in a simple way and to create a very interesting fragment, the repetition of which enables the completion of an elegant costume jewellery set which consists of a necklace, a bracelet, a brooch and a ring.

String the binding wire into the hole of GDMC15X9/212. Press both parts of the wire together and twist 3x. Twist the longer part of the wire around a skewer and create an eye. Twist the remainder of the wire around the created neck from the top to the bottom.
Then string 20 rocailles GBR10L/49102 and once again twist the wire with the rocailles around the created neck, tighten well, pass the end of the wire under the created spirals and pinch the end of the wire. In this way, prepare 7 tear-shaped

central section of the necklace.
this central section, use the smaller sized GBFP8MM/212 (figure no. 5).
|As with the necklace, connect the individual fragments of 5 sewn-in beads and end with a snap hook and adjusting chain: do not add the pendants here.|
|Sew the sewn-in beads together at the edge of the opening using 12x rocailles GBR10L/49102 on each side and hang the pendants at its centre. Adhere the broach pin on the back using the hot melt adhesive.|
|Connect one size of GBFP8MM/212 or GBFP10MM/212 to each size of the sewn-in bead.
Connect the pendant to the larger bead using a ring and connect the earring mechanism on the other side using an oval.
|Do not cut one end of the line at one of the beads sewn-in with Twin and continue stringing 1x Rocaille, 1x Twin, 1x Rocaille, 1x Twin until you have strung a total of 17x Rocailles and 16x Twins.
Pass the line through the outer hole of one Twin in the opposite part of the Twin decoration and continue back by adding 1x Rocaille between the individual Twins.
As such, string a total of another 17x Rocailles.
Pass the line through the outer hole of the Twin one more time, pass it through the circle again and finish with a firm knot which you should then hide between the Twins and in doing so end the circle forming the ring.
