Preciosa Candy Ovals were inspired by the very popular 2-hole round candy oval beads. The candy ovals come in three sizes which gives lots of opportunities to create beautiful earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Here are some projects from Preciosa which you can download from our website.
Preciosa Candy Ovals
The 2-hole Preciosa Candy Ovals are domed on one side and almost flat on the back. The candy ovals come in three sizes – 4x6mm, 6x8mm and 10x12mm. Their shape makes them very versatile and the three sizes gives lots of design options.
