The 2-hole Matubo gemduos are one of the most popular multi-hole beads. Their diamond shape means that they are very versatile. They nestle together beautifully but also work well with other 2-hole beads. We have some lovely free projects from Matubo.
These 8x5mm diamond-shaped beads are extremely popular due to their very versatile shape. You can just sit the diamond shapes side by side or make a pretty star or large diamond shape with them.
They also work well with other 2-hole beads such as the paisley duos and ginkos shown here.
The Matubo gemduos are available in a very wide range of colours including backlit colours and the new Bondeli shades.
You can view the gemduo beads here.
