Superduo DuetsSuperduo 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 loveeen oude(re) liefde en een nieuwe liefde

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

Ik vind de CzechMate Crescent nog steeds geweldige kralen om mee te werken, maar ook de nieuwe Arcos kralen ontworpen door Puca zijn erg leuk. Het zijn beide maanvormige kralen, maar omdat de positie van de gaten bij beide kralen ergens anders is is de uitstraling die ze hebben in je kralenwerk totaal andersDesign by Akke Jonkhof Design by Akke Jonkhof Design by Akke Jonkhof Design by Akke Jonkhof Design by Akke Jonkhof Design by Akke Jonkhof
