Preciosa Necklace Project - Elegance with Twin

Twin beads project



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. 

Try this easy and effective method of using the PRECIOSA Twin™ seed beads!

 Metal parts:

Headpins 24 mm, 20 mm, 18 mm and 16 mm pins (or any other available sizes)
Rings 6mm, ovals, an adjusting chain, a snap hook, earring hooks, a broach pin 0.35mm, binding wire, scissors
Stringing needle JT8 or JT12
Nylon line TTMONO.3B/50 or TTMONO.25B/50
Flat nose, needle nose and snipping pliers, skewers, hot melt adhesive


The pendants:

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 
pendants: 3 for the necklace, 2 for the pair of earrings and 2 for the brooch.


 The sewn-in bead:

String 24 GBR2H/49102onto the line and tie them into a ring.
Pass the line through the second hole of the tlast GBR2H/49102.
Tilt the individual GBR2H/49102 out to the opposite sides and add one GBR2H/49102 to each of the created gaps and string 12x GBR2H/49102 in this row.
This will give rise to three rows of strung GBR2H/49102.
At the end of the row, once again pass the line through the second hole in the last GBR2H/49102.
Then string one GBR10L/49102 into the gaps between the outer GBR2H/49102: a total of 12 beads (figure no. 1, 2 and 3). Finish the row with a strong knot and pass the end of the line through to the opposite edge and once again fill the gaps between the GBR2H/49102 with 12x GBR10L/49102.
Before tightening this outer row, place 1 x GBFP12MM/212 into the created opening, tighten the outer line and finish it with a knot.
Then pass the end of the line through to the inside row between the GBR2H/49102.
Pass the eye pin through the hole of the GBFP12MM/212 between the GBR2H/49102 of the central row and finish with an eye.
In this way, prepare 9x beads for the necklace, 5x for the bracelet, 2x for the earrings, 2x for the broach and 1x for the ring.
A total of 19 is therefore necessary for the entire set.

The necklace:


Connect 1x GBFP10MM/212 on both sides of the sewn-in bead and connect the individual created fragments using the rings. 
Add 1x GBFP6MM/212 on each side (a total of 4) at the edges and in the 

central section of the necklace. 
Also attach the prepared pendants (figure no. 4) to the rings in the central part of the necklace. 
Connect one fragment with the sewn-in bead to the central part of the necklace and finish it with a pendant. In order to soften 

this central section, use the smaller sized GBFP8MM/212 (figure no. 5). 
Connect the snap hook and the adjusting chain ended with a pendant.

The bracelet:

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.

 The brooch:

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.

 The ring:

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.
