Beadwork feature - Twin beads

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 13, 2014, 11:47 PM

This is the second instalment of my beadwork series on beads of different shapes. Several years ago Preciosa made oval-shaped beads with two parallel holes - Twin beads. Since they are made the same way the regular Czech seed beads are made they can be inconsistent in size. There are also Super Duo beads. They look similar to Twin beads, but they are not made the same way. They are pressed in a mould so every bead is same in size and shape. While both of these sorts of beads can be used in well known beadweaving stitches (eg. peyote), there is also a whole array of modified stitches that will help you use these interesting beads. I hope you'll find inspiration and enjoy seeing what other deviants have made using these two-hole beads.
