Snake Skin Bracelet with Super Duos
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.

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!Reviewed by: Jan Smith from Columbus, NC. on 6/10/2015
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.Reviewed by: Cyndi from California. on 8/17/2014
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.Reviewed by: Becky from Toronto canada. on 12/31/2014

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 muchReviewed by: John from Lisli, Illinois . on 10/6/2014
