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.

Good tutorial video. Karla does an excellent job of showing the viewer what to do and what not to do! The instructions are clear. Looking forward to making this bracelet.

Rating 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

Rating 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.

Love the bracelet. Difficult to see what the beader is doing. Maybe close ups would help

Rating 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.

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.

Questions and Answers
Q: Just wondering why you chose to use Supplemax rather than Fireline? Do you like working with Supplemax better?
Asked by: - 8/3/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: Very good question. I have read on our Bead Chat that a couple of the ladies have successfully used Fireline and a needle to do this project. I chose SuppleMax because I was hoping it would provide a bit of structure to the piece, to give it a more cuffed look when I added the 8/0's. I really don't have a preference to either one. Karla

Q: What are you adding the split ring to, the supplemax or the hole of the superduo?
Asked by: - 8/17/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: The first thing we do is add 4 8/0 seed beads and the split ring. So really I am stringing it onto the supplemax, but it is really floating on the 8/0's. Karla
