The DiamonDuo 2-hole beads are one of the most popular multi-hole beads as they’re easy to use and the diamond shapes fit beautifully together. These Czech glass beads also come in lots of lovely colours. Finally, their shape means they work well with lots of other beads. We have some great DiamonDuo jewellery projects from BeadMaster USA to introduce you to these beads.
These diamonduos measure 5x8mm and have 2 holes which enables them to be used to make some great jewellery. Here are some great projects and ideas for easy bracelets and other diamonduo jewellery.
They come in 80 colours including the popular metallic shades including metallic mixes. They’re also available in pastel and chalk shades. This great colour range means they are easy to mix and match with lots of other beads.
The latest shades are the prismatic colours. These have great depth and light which will therefore add a sparkle and extra dimension to your diamonduo jewellery.
