Preciosa Ornela Seed Beads

For over 80 years Kraemer & Feldmann / H&V Trading have been the representative for Preciosa Ornela (previously known as Jablonex) in Southern Africa. Through three generations the organization has coordinated the importing of glass seed beads from the Czech Republic.

Produced since the 16th century, in the northern Czech Bohemian region, in the Jizera Mountains, this region is still home to the largest and widest bead production in the world.  In 1858 Josef Riedel established glass making factories in the region, and grew the ranges and industry. By the end of the 19th century Czech beads were available all over the world, and started to be used by indigenous people to represent their cultures and traditions.

Preciosa Ornela seed beads have several outstanding features especially when it comes to their range of shapes. Made in dozens of different designs and variants, the most well know are the round seed beads (rocailles), which have a round or angular hole. The unique coloured glass used to produce the seed beads also makes the beads unrivalled and they have a wide spectrum of shades and colours.
