Snake Skin Bracelet with Super Duos

Part Number:VIDEO-0139


I was searching for SuperDuo designs when I came across this bracelet on Pinterest! It took a few different times to figure out how it was done, but I really love it! The most fun was all of the different color combinations that I came up with! The pattern is not hard, but a bit tedious, there are a few steps involved, but the result is a beautiful pattern that mimics a snake skin pattern. I am going to include the colorways I came up with, but would also love to see what you all come up with. I am using two different colors of the Duos, one color for the spine and another for the outer with a coordinating color in an 8/0 seed bead too.

Tips and Tricks
  • Use approximately 1 gram for the spine color.
  • Use approximately 11 grams of the outer color.
  • Use approximately 1 gram of a coordinating color in an 8/0 seed bead.

Mrs
Love it! I made one with the Supplemax as in the video and then tried one with Fireline using 2 needles. Both worked up quick and easy, in fact, I did the second one during a beading work session and now everyone else in the group wants to try them. Thank you!

Snakeskin bracelet
Always fabulous tutorials. Annie's beads is a go to place for me to learn. There was a bit of confusion at the beginning,could not see exactly how the centre was added. Finally figured it out for a great bracelet in bronze and turquoise.

Naked thread
On the step up to the outside row of superduos, a bit of thread shows as it goes from end spine bead to the top hole of a superduo. My experience has been any bit of thread showing is a place for a work to snag and break, plus I don't like the look of bare thread. A shame, too, because the main body of the bracelet is quite lovely.

Snake Bracelet
Would be nice if you showed a better close up of what you are doing. Great job on the video but it is very hard to see what you are doing.

So very pretty
With out your video I could not have made this. A little tricky at first but after you get started you can fly. I could not wait to show of what I made. I am picking out colors to do another one tomorrow. So excited. Thanks so much

Well done.
I always enjoy your videos. They are fun and thoughtful and presented in a very enjoyable manner. I also feel that after them, I could do whatever you have just shown. That may not always be true, but at least I feel that way.
