Free Two-Hole Bead Patterns (2/12/2014)
If you haven’t noticed the two-hole bead craze, you must have been living in a cave for the last several years. As fun as it was to start, there are so many new shapes and patterns coming out, it’s hard to keep up. The latest are two-hole triangle beads. I can’t wait to get my hands on some. If you haven’t played with any two-hole beads, here are some patterns to get you started.

One of the best things about working at Bead&Button is getting to play around with the many different kinds of beads our contributors/designers use in the projects they send us. We are already working on the June issue, so I’m knee-deep in sea and summer projects, but I took a little break to work on these really fun-to-stitch bracelets using the two-hole bead studs. These bracelets are designed by Dana Rudolph, and she stitched the cream/gold and the bronze/gold versions. I, of course, got to stitch the other two.

However, right now it is so cold in Boise. Probably not as cold as the East Coast, but some of us are very tired of this dreary weather. So we had a class at Bead Street and decided that we could at least ‘think’ spring. Another beautiful Marcia Balonis pattern, Petals N’ Posies. Some of the gals finished their bracelets and brought them in.

This pattern uses the new SuperUno beads to create a pretty ruffled edge. SuperUno beads are SuperDuo beads with only one hole (the first two bracelets from the left in the photo use SuperUno beads along the outer edge). You can also use Rizo beads (third bracelet from left), although they tend to be more floppy, or use all two-hole SuperDuo beads (fourth bracelet from left) if you don’t mind empty holes showing along the outer ruffled edge.

Our Czech Mates Two Hole Beads have been getting a lot of attention lately because of their unique properties, two holes and the variety of beautiful colors and finishes available. Just by looking at Tila beads side by side with Czech Mates Two Hole Tiles, it’s easy to see that the beads are not interchangeable. Although both square, tile shaped and featuring two holes, the differences are obvious.

The Abby Twin Bead Bracelet by Megan Patton and Beadaholique uses a circular netting and two colors of Twins to create a pretty cuff. The Skinny Twin Cube Band by Deborah Roberti and Around the Beading Table combines cube seed beads and Twins for a gorgeous bracelet. The Twin Rivoli Pendant tutorial by SashaSi is a great way to combine twins and your favorite crystal colors. You won’t believe how easy it is to create the London’s Garden Bracelet by Beads Magic using just two-needle cross weave.

Today I want to show you some of the new two-hole lentil beads introduced at Tucson in February. Notice how the beads stand up above the bracelet. This is my original design I created for the Trendsetters, for a jewelry display in Tucson. We need to name this but so far all we could come up with was “Centipede”. We didn’t think that was very flattering, so if you have an idea, please let me know.
This video tutorial from The Potomac Bead Company teaches you how to make our ‘Knitted Herringbone’ bracelet, this time using Czech two-hole Rullas instead of…
Supplies: -Beads (I used 6mm Australian Jasper Beads for the green/blue bracelet & beads that were a little bigger than 4mm on the pink-ish bracelet) -Collapsible eye needles -Bead weaving/stringing thread -Leather cord or faux leather cord (I think the cord was 1.5 or 2mm thick) -Button -Super glue (optional)
