Czech Mates 2 - Hole Triangles


I was so excited to receive our order of these wonderful little beads that I couldn't wait to create something with them. These have been designed by CzechMates who have made a selection of 2 holed beads in different shapes but with the 2 holes, in each style, the same distance apart so that they can all be incorporated in designs together. The triangles measure 6mm on each side by 2mm thick with rounded corners.

For this design, I combined one of my favourite beads of the moment - Super Duos - with these gorgeous CzechMates 2 - Hole Triangles & embellished with some Miyuki Seed Beads to create this pretty little flower.

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to make a Soutache Bracelet incorporating the gorgeous Super Duos. You can purchase the kit for this bracelet directly from us for £14.95, or you can purchase the items separately.

For this bracelet I have used the Gorgeous Czech Glass Super Duo 2 Hole Beads Surrounded by 3 lovely colours of Soutache & Enhanced with Seed Beads & Miracle Beads, all finished off with a Silver Plated Lobster Clasp.


You don't have to make this bracelet in this colour as we have over 90 gorgeous colours of Super Duos to choose from & nearly 40 colours of Soutache, so why not get creative.


This bracelet can be made to any length by adding or taking away one of the completed diamond shape sections or by adding a larger clasp such as a toggle. The ingredients below are for the bracelet as shown which measures 7 ½ inches in total length.

1 x 10g Super Duo 2 Hole Beads Aqua White Lustre - (you need 80 beads for this bracelet)

Hope - Raising money for Breast Cancer Care


Our 'Hope' bracelet designed for Breast Cancer Care


In January of this year, my sister Janet underwent a mastectomy after discovering that she had breast cancer.

Throughout the last few months she has shown great courage, strength & determination & I am very proud of how she has dealt with this situation both in coming to terms with losing her breast & also of all the help she has already given to other people. She has shared her thoughts & experiences with me & my daughter Sophie & we have been so inspired by her positive attitude that we felt we had to do something to help.
