Superduo Duets

Today a new bead is launched. It is not an new bead shape, but is is a older bead in a totally new appearance. The new Superduo Duet has 2 colours, which give a total new way of using them.
I had the chance to try them and here are my first ( and for sure not the last) results. design Akke Jonkhof

An old(er) love and a new love

A still love to work with CzechMate Crescent as you can see in the first bracelet, But I think the new Arcos beads designed by Puca are also great to play with. Both are moon shaped beads, but because the holes are placed in a different side of the beads the have totally different apperance in beadwork

CzechMate Crescent beaded bead Little knot

Sometimes I am so busy with beading, patterns and my shop I forget to post here
I made these beaded beads with CzechMate Crescent, and used that idea to make cufflinks with them, but you could use them also for earrings
I already made a pattern for these beaded beads and cufflinks, you can find it in my Etsy Shop
