The original Preciosa candy bead is a 2-hole low cabochon with a round base and an 8mm diameter. This versatile shape combines very well with seed beads and other beads including Preciosa chilli and pellet beads. It can be used for simple stringing or incorporated into complex designs. Its low curvature means that it is easy to sew round and join together. It is also highly suitable for use in embroidery.
