An Introduction to SuperDuos

For many beaders CzechMates SuperDuos were a new thing, but as I'd only just started beading everything was new to me! The local beading group make a project each month and one of them was this SuperDuo necklace.

I selected the colours to match a particular top in my wardrobe. The lava red and bright green really do pick up the colours.

The SuperDuos are spaced out by picots of 11s and there are some triangle beads in the three focal areas to give a 'pinky' kind of look. The clasp is made with a vintage button. Buttons with shanks are excellent for clasps, I pick mine up in charity shops, or by raiding the button box.
