Wheels made from PRECIOSA Tee™ and PRECIOSA Twin™

PRECIOSA ORNELA presents the new PRECIOSA Tee™ pressed bead from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand. The axially symmetrical, flat beads in the shape of the letter "T" interlock together and they are a great accessory in bead needlework. They can also be used for different types of stringings where they enable the creation of various 3-dimensional structures. Their shape makes them an excellent accessory for the PRECIOSA Twin™ two-hole beads and seed beads.

The procedure:

Sew every row through several times so that it is sufficiently strong. Check that all the holes are clear, before stringing the beads.

Step 1
Alternately string (fig. no. 1) 10x T and 10x Tee (fig. no. 2).

Step 2
Tie the stringing into a circle with a double knot (fig. no. 3). Leave ca 8 cm of the line free at the end for sewing in. You can sew it in straight away so that the end does not get in your way or you can sew it in at the end as usual.

Step 3
Thread the needle through the second hole of the T (fig. no. 4), add 1x Tee (fig. no. 5) and pass the needle to the adjacent T (fig. no. 6 + 6a).
