SuperDuo Wrap Bracelet

I made several of these about Christmas time last year then set it aside. I believe it was something I saw on our Bead Chat. I realized I have not done this as a project and thought this would be a good time to bring it back out! The SuperDuos come in so many colors that the combinations could be endless. I add an extra button for a focal to the wrap besides the one I use as a clasp. Of course a focal bead would work too!

  1. Determine the length of the finished wrap. For instance if you want it to wrap three times, as my sample, than figure 7.5x3=22.5 and add some extra.
  2. You will need to double the amount you determine, so I am going to cut about 50" of beading wire.
  3. String enough 11/0 seed beads to create a loop around your button, I used about 32 beads, let these beads drop to the center of the beading wire.
  4. String a SD over both wires and bring it down to the 11/0's.
  5. Repeat this pattern, 11/0 on both wires and SD until you have threaded about 8 1/2"; string on the other button and continue the 11/0-SD pattern for another 12".
  6. When you have reached your end, ending with 11/0's string (1) 11/0 on to both wires together and run the wires up through a crimp bead, wire guardian back down the other side of the wire guardian.
  7. Slip the button shank onto the wire guardian and then run the wires back through the crimp bead.
  8. Make the necessary adjustments to tighten up the work and flat crimp the crimp bead using chain nose pliers.
  9. Trim the excess wire with your nipper tool to complete!

Questions and Answers

Q: What does the SD refer to in the instructions?
Asked by:  - 8/4/2014
A: It is simply an abbreviation for Super Duo. So when I say SD I mean for you to string on a SuperDuo. Karla

Q: I don't understand "wire guardian" what is it?
Asked by: Lois McCamy - 8/4/2014
A: A wire guardian is a small finding that helps protect the wire from normal wear and tear when rubbing against the clasp. You can watch the product usage video on the product page to see a demonstration. http://www.auntiesbeads.com/Gold-Plated-Wire-Guardian_p_2775.html They are not necessary, if you do not want to use them.

Q: it's very confusing the product supplythat you need. It lists too many supplies. Is that for two different colors?
Asked by: connie - 8/6/2014
A: I listed some other color options. You need a SuperDuo and an 11/0. In the listing I will add a SuperDuo and then offer an 11/0 in two different colors. Sometimes it is hard for people to know what colors go with what, so I am just offering some more options. Karla

Q: I can't seem to get the two wires through the wire guardian. Why not?
Asked by: Crystal - 10/1/2014
A: I was able to do it, using a 19 strand wire. If you are using something larger than you may not be able to get both through. It is not necessary to use the wire guardian and if you have it strung, I would just omit the wire guardian altogether. I would just make the loop at the button large enough to allow movement. Karla

Q: On the SuperDuo wrap bracelet, how do you get two wires through the wire guardian?I have only been able to get one wire through any wire guardian I have purchased. They are so small. Thank you.
Asked by: Sandy - 10/8/2014
A: Hmm...I just had this question the other day too: I was able to do it, using a 19 strand wire. If you are using something larger than you may not be able to get both through. It is not necessary to use the wire guardian and if you have it strung, I would just omit the wire guardian altogether. I would just make the loop at the button large enough to allow movement. Karla
