Duo Diamond Bracelet-Bead Weaving Jewelry Tutorial

I’m still currently in love with super duo designs. If you follow my Pinterest boards you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been pinning a lot of these designs. I’ve made a bunch of bracelets, too. Some I’ve taken apart because I wasn’t thrilled with them and a couple I’m really happy with.

I think the fascination is because of the multitude of possibilities in the way they fit together, it makes sense if you know that I also was very much into pieced quilting designs for quite a few years. But now my house is full of quilts and it takes too long to finish one so I only make them for special occasion gifts.

This bracelet will take you a LOT less time to make than a quilt, even with making several samples to decide which colors. When you watch the video you may notice that even though I made all those samples I still did end up trying out a different color, not liking it, pulling out a whole bunch of bead weaving and redoing it.

That’s what I get for being picky!

One thing I did not show you in the video, (because I was so disgusted with myself and just wanted to get the recording done) was that one of my superduo beads had a clogged hole. It was one of the last ones, I was nearly finished with the bracelet and when I went to clear it out with an awl the bead broke. Grrrrrrr….

In order to finish the video I actually glued the thread across the tip of the bead and kept it face down so you couldn’t see the broken bead for the rest of the video. But now I’m coming clean. ?

So let that be a lesson for all of us, just like I mentioned in my Friday Findings video on superduos, do be sure to check that all of the bead holes are clear.

Enjoy the video and happy creating!
