Vibrant Villa beads
The PRECIOSA VillaTM Pressed Bead with the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand has the shape of a slender pyramid. The bead with dimensions of 6x13mm has a square base and a diagonally placed hole. The very low placement of the hole enables the connection of individual beads and their simple edging with small seed beads and beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech BeadsTM range. The bead supple- ments the range of fashion and popular costume jewellery accessories.
It is suitable for all types of surface finishes, and we offer it in 49 colours and finishes. The edges of the pyramid especially stand out in opaque colours or with the use of all-over surface finishes. www.preciosa-ornela.com
