Rolas, Rolas, Rolas

 Keep those beads a rola-in’ …
You can string or weave or even – put them on rawhide!

Rolas are a bead from Preciosa-Ornela – made using what they call a “new quality cutting technology.” The advantage of this technology is “increased precision, for better adherence to the dimensions” – which means, I guess, they got tired of me saying “Czech beads are nice, but not consistent in size like the Japanese seed beads.”  😉

We are rolling (heh heh) them out in two sizes, 4.5 mm and 6.2 mm – and we are going to start out with tubes of 20 grams (about 145 beads) or 16.5 grams (about 45 beads), respectively. They have relatively large holes, so if you want to, say knit up something grand with massive quantities, just shoot us and email and we can get you 100 gram bags instead.

You can think of them as accent beads, for stringing, spacers, or seed beads on steroids.

Here are some project ideas from Preciosa. Because of their size – they will work up fast. You could prototype designs in a fraction of the time.

As always – all the new stuff is here
