Dancing Duo Bracelets

Hi Everyone! We’ve been promising you this tutorial and here it is! These bracelets are easy to make and fun to wear. The bracelets featured here consist of Super Duos but you can use any Czech glass bead or bead of your choice. Keep in mind that some beads are more difficult to work with. However, you will be extremely pleased with the end result! Happy Beading!

Supplies needed: 11° SB (seed bead)

SD(super duo)

6 lb Fireline size

size 11 or 12 beading needle

*check Super Duos to make sure both holes are open before beginning*

  1. To help learn the stitch; at the beginning of each row, I pull out 3 sead beads and 3 Super Duos. Once all 3 SB and 3 SD are used, you will know it’s the end of your row. The first two rows are difficult but after that it gets much easier. Hang in there!

2. Begin by stringing a stop bead leaving an 8″ tail. Then string an 11° SB, SD, 11° SB, SD, 11° SB, SD. Slide down to the stop bead.

3. Beginning row 2: Go through the empty hole of the SD that is closest to your needle.

step9

4a. Pick up a SB and SD and pass through the next SB of row 1. Pull to tighten.

step10

4b. Pass through the empty hole of the next SD and pull thread to tighten. I usually anchor row 1 beads by pressing against the mat with my finger while I pull to keep in proper order. This is the most difficult part of the whole bracelet; making sure your beads are in the right order. If your beads come off the mat, it’s easy to lose your place.

5. Pick up a new SB and SD

step12

and go into the next set of beads in row 1. Starting with a seed bead

step13

And continuing through the empty hole of the next SD.

6. Pick-up another SB and SD

step14

and go through the SB next to the stop bead (silver bead at the end).

step15

Row 2 is complete. This is what row 1 and 2 look like. The hardest part is over. Good Job!

step16

7. You are starting the 3rd row. You will repeat row 3 for the duration of the bracelet.      Go through the empty hole of the last SD used. Set out 3 SB and 3 SD.

At the beginning of the row go through the empty hole of the SD of the previous row.

 

step18

7b. Pick up a SB and SD,  go through the next SB and SD of the previous row.DSC00078

7c. Pick-up a SB and SD. Go through the next SB and the empty hole of the next SD in the previous row.

step19

7d. Pick-up SB and SD. Go through the last SB of the previous row. Pull to tighten. Row 3 is complete. Repeat this row until you achieve the desired length of the bracelet. Allow room for the clasp.

10. Repeat row 3! Repeat! Repeat! Repeat! It get’s easier with each row. The hard part is over! The results are well worth it!

step20

In the beginning try Super Duos or Two hole lentils. You will be happy with the results. You can change the width of the row by adding an extra set beads in row 1. Please let us know if you have any feedback. Kits will be available soon. Send us pictures of your bracelet or submit your finished work to be featured on our website.

Toho Demi – New Japanese Seed Beads

For beaders around the world, the newest Toho seed bead shape, the Demi Round, is a whole new way to elevate your beading game. Using the most cutting edge technology while combining Eastern precision with Western aesthetics, the Demi seed bead is an instant classic shape that will swiftly become foundation for all kinds of jewelry designs. The versatility of this shape is matched only by its unique profile that allows for a denser look in all kinds of stitches. The Demi Round is a thinner version of the traditional round seed bead, but has the same hole size and diameter. The Toho Demi is similar to the very popular Czech Glass O-Bead, it has a large hole and a disc-like shape. It looks like parts of a regular seed bead have been carefully shaved off leaving a pristine rounded surface.

Toho Demi Round seed beads were developed by Toho, a well known Japanese seed bead manufacturer, in collaboration with Starman. The new bead shape is being launched today with great fanfare in the beading world but will only be available for purchase on June 1st, 2016 at http://www.eurekacrystalbeads.com.

Toho Demi beads are available in two sizes: 8/0 and 11/0 and in a wide selection of colors.
