Czech SuperDuo Jewelry with Pattern Tutorial

SuperDuo is a Czech-made glass seed bead with a diamond shape and two 0.8mm holes. They are great for dimensional bead weaving designs, from your basic flat stitching to more intricate 3D lace seed bead designs. We have two fun jewelry pieces using these versatile Czech SuperDuo seed beads; accompanied with pattern tutorials.

We love the different mixes that SuperDuo offers. The assorted SuperDuo colors make it easy to bead freely and not worry about color sequence. Our bracelet is weaved with a simple straight stitch and because Super Duo has two holes, they are easy to intertwine.

Below is our bracelet pdf pattern tutorial. With a tube of 300+ beads, we were able to make this bracelet project, with extra beads to spare. For our 7” bracelet, we started with 83 beads for the first row. You can add more or less for your wrist preference, but make sure to have an odd bead count before coming back around. When you reach the end of the pattern, tie the remaining string with the string closest to it and thread through a few more beads before snipping the string. As an option, you can glue the knot for a secure hold. Add your choice of lobster clasp to one end with a jump ring and on the other end, attach ¾” of chain with another jump ring. Or you can certainly choose a toggle or tube clasp to finish off your bracelet.

    1. Thank you Jacqueline for your comment. We agree that the bracelet does have that Indian Corn and fall color palette. It’s fun to use the Czech Super Duo MIX colors for this project because you get a fun variation of colors.

  1. This is gorgeous, I am also interested in the items list for your Czech Super Duo wrap bracelet in Aqua and green tones on your site and can’t find it. I really would like to make it and don’t know what supplies and sizes to buy. Thank you in advance Pat D.
