SuperDuo Delights Bracelets Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
SuperDuos allow you to create jewelry that looks unique! Cynthia created these simple bracelets with her favorite SuperDuos and one of our exclusive Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends. You can use your favorite seed beads and SuperDuos to create your own version of these SuperDuo Delights!
Fold a length of thread in half and add a needle to each end. String the 6mm antique brass-plated magnetic clasp onto the thread so that it is in the middle of the fold. Add two beads from the Warm Metals Designer Seed Bead Blend onto each side of the thread. Then, add one SuperDuo 2-hole opaque Picasso turquoise seed bead to both threads.
String one seed bead onto each end of the thread, followed by one SuperDuo. Repeat until your bracelet is the desired length.
Add your last SuperDuo to one side of the thread only, leaving the other stringing hole open. After the last SuperDuo added, string two seed beads onto the same side of the thread, followed by the clasp and two more seed beads.
With the needle on the right end of the thread, go through the open stringing hole of the last SuperDuo bead.
Make a knot with the ends of the two threads, just after the last SuperDuo bead. Go back through several beads before trimming the thread and repeat for the left side of the thread. If you have enough thread, you can reinforce the bracelet by going through many beads in the bracelet before cutting the threads.
