In this article we will talk about the best known among beads: Superduo. Let’s find out together why, if DIY jewelry is your hobby, you can’t do without them!
Superduo are pressed glass beads produced in the Czech Republic. Being part of the huge family of Bohemian beads, they are commonly used in beadweaving. They are 2.5 mm wide and 5 mm long with two stringing holes. They are oval-shaped with a light central protrusion.
What makes Superduo Beads so special?
Why do we dedicate some time talking about Superduo today? Because, besides being recognized as high quality beads, they have a particular structure, and a shape that guarantees stability and precision to the creations for which they are used. In fact, the unmistakable design makes it possible to create interlocking effects in quick and easy way. They are extremely versatile and allow the realization of patterns and projects of different complexity, even curvilinear, such as the setting of Cabochons and Swarovski Rivoli. Compared to other double-hole beads, they have wider holes that allow the passage of more threads, and are therefore suitable for elaborate and detailed works. For these reasons, we can say that Superduo are the most used beads by those who make bijoux with beadweaving techniques (such as peyote).
