Seed Beads

Preciosa® (The Preciosa Ornela company) is one of the most prominent suppliers of glass components for fashion jewellery industry in the world. Indeed, the company is world No.1 in the production of seed beads. This unique product cannot be compared to any other type of beads thanks to its technology, appearance, product range and qualities.

Glass colours
The colour scheme of the glass tubes used for seed bead manufacture is huge. The colours can be divided into several basic groups – transparent, non-transparent (opaque), alabaster (semi-transparent), atlas and sometimes even combined handmade.

Coating effects 
The seed bead colour card is further enhanced by various types of coating. Lustre decor and Iris décor in several colour shades (sphinx, brown, blue, green, red, rainbow) are very often used for seed beads coating.

Hole decoration
Hole decoration, the so-called colour lining in a very wide colour scale, is quite often used next to coating when decorating seed beads. The most used type of lining is the silver lining. The difference between a round and a square hole can be perfectly seen right thanks to the silver lining; the lining creates exceptional mirror effects in square holes.
