Superduo and Crystal Beaded Bracelet Tutorials

By on Sunday, June 14, 2015 2 Comments

Can't get enough of superduos?  I don't blame you. These two whole beads are wonderful for increasing the design possibilities. Pair them with crystals and you will not only add a little bling but making beaded designs  will be quicker.  Not having to deal with gazillion seed beads is a bonus!  First up is Aleshia's designs. Her  beaded video tutorial combines superduos with crystals to form a diamond patterned beaded bracelet.



 It is amazing how differently each of the 4 variations Aleshia made looked depending on what colors she used. Here is the earth toned one with a button clasp.


I also loved her version which uses a lobster clasp and split ring for the closure.  Look how she made the diamonds much more obvious in this one.  Please check the youtube link above - Aleshia lists all the supplies you need there.





I also liked Diana Balogh's quick and easy to make superduo flower bracelet tutorial. The central flowers all have a crystal in the middle. You can see why she called it the Flower-in-Flower design.
