In my professional opinion, Superduo beads are clearly superior to Twin beads.
1. Superduos are made much more precisely than Twins.
2. I love the "pinched" quality of the Superduos - it lends to a really nice locking-together quality that's very fine!
3. Some of the Twin beads have a missing hole!* Once you string a bunch on, like if you're making a wrap bracelet, the last thing you want is a hole-less bead!! Argh!
*Disclaimer: I have found many Superduos with blocked holes (not missing) - each time the hole has been clogged with broken bead shards - I've always been able to unblock them with my beading needle ... so no worries!
Peyote with Superduo Beads
I really love the way my peyote bracelet turned out! I joined it and made a cuff because I didn't like introducing a clasp, it just looked wrong!
If you don't do the peyote correctly at the edge you will have lots of thread showing. Make sure to add a Superduo at the end of each row, passing through it twice, then the thread will hide up against this new bead! Nice tip, eh?
If you find this helpful, or want to agree or disagree, or post a photo of something you've done with these beads, please, please do!
Thanks for checking in!
