This year, PRECIOSA ORNELA will present a showcase of 12 unique bead and seed bead shapes with a registered trademark. Every month, we will look at one bead or seed bead from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™. February, will look at the exceptional PRECIOSA Farfalle™ seed bead named after the Italian word for a butterfly, Farfalla, and its special type the PRECIOSA Cut Farfalle.
I often have difficulty determining which bead is a Preciosa Ornela bead and which is a Czech bead or if they are the same bead. Some companies give their beads similar names. I believe that the beads I used are the Farfalla. I also used handmade lampwork beads and Preciosa crystals in my necklace design.
