We have prepared an attractive bracelet for you in pastel shades and made with the new PRECIOSA Candy Rose bead in combination with PRECIOSA Solo™.

We have modified the smooth shape of PRECIOSA Candy™ and created an embossed surface with a stylised rose, as the name suggests.

Ginkgo Leaf Bead Also Known as Ginko

Introducing the Ginkgo Leaf Bead.
It is a two-hole bead.
7.54 x 3.50 x 7.35mm
Manufactured by the same company that created the SuperDuo!
The Ginkgo Leaf Bead will be on our website shortly. We wanted to give our customers a few days notice as you plan out your next order.
There are 42 wonderful colors to look forward to!
The fan shape is distinctive and fresh.
Often misspelled Ginko, this beautiful leaf deserves its day in the sun!
Inspired by the natural curves of the ginkgo leaf, the Ginkgo Leaf Bead provides an elegant shape for your beaded designs. The Ginkgo has two parallel holes that make the beads fit together perfectly side by side and also pairs well with other bead shapes.
We can’t wait to see what designers create with it and look forward to seeing the Ginkgo Leaf bead being incorporated with other beads.
This is the first example of many!  We’ll have a step by step to share with you in a day or two.

New Swarovski Crystal Electric LacquerPRO

The neon-like palette of the Crystal Electric LacquerPRO Family delivers a high-voltage sparkle like no other.
The inspiration comes from an exuberant tropical spectrum- a heightened sense of color that transforms the performer into a vibrant bird of paradise. It’s a strategy focused on ensuring that the dancer captures-and holds-an audience from the second they step into the spotlight. The aim is to drench the senses in color, exuberant prints, densely encrusted crystals, and materials that move. The result is phenomenal tactile designs.
The designs are mesmerizing. They bridge the gap between stage and judging panel with myriad new creative possibilities, enhancing a costume’s competitive advantage.
