Many of you liked this simply elegant spiral bracelet made from SuperDuos , so as we promised we are releasing the free instructions for all of you to enjoy.
What you need:
2 tubes of second SuperDuo color
In our samples we used:
Sample 1: Superduo Beige Luster Picasso , Superduo Bronze
Sample 2: Superduo Steal Blue Pearl, Superduo Antique Gold Metallic
What you do:
On about 2 ½ to 3 arm spans of Fireline, thread a #12 needle on one end. String on 6 SuperDuos. If using two colors alternate them. Make sure you leave at least 8 to 12 inches tail for adding the clasp. You can use a stop bead if you need to.
Make a circle, by either tying a knot or going back through the beads again to form a circle. Go through the beads at least 3 times. Pull tight. Head around to bead opposite the tail. Make sure that you finish opposite the tale (so you are working away from the tail)
Take your needle and go up through the second hole in the superduo, making sure to go counter clockwise. You will continue to work counter clockwise by picking up the color of the bead you are going into: example – pick up one color and go into same color, pick up second color and go into the same second color.
Continue in this manner until you have about 3 or 4 rows.
Then pull it tight and up into a round spiral shape. You can put your finger in the middle and use it to help pull the beads up. Keeping your tension tight continue adding beads for the length needed for your bracelet.
To finish: after doing a full round all six colors or six beads, go into the second super duo hole, this time going clockwise. Go back through all the top holes twice pulling the ends together like the beginning. Add clasp. The one I liked the most with this design is the 11mm Gold Magnetic Disc Clasp offered by Eureka Crystal Beads, but you may use any of their Magnetic Clasps.
TIP: I usually use the remaining thread and go back through the bracelet again until I run out of thread. Cut the remaining thread.
You aren’t limited to six beads. The more beads, the thicker the bracelet.

No matter what I try I can’t download/print the pattern withput heyting a lot of extraneous writing. Can you help please? I rrally want to take it the nursing home so mum can make it. She can only manage easier patterns as she’s now 90 🙂
Hi Hazel! Thanks for checking out our blog. What kind of extraneous writing are you getting when you try to print? The pattern instructions or other stuff? Are you just trying to print the photos? You would probably have to copy and paste what you want into a word document to get it to print the way you like. We don’t have an easily printable version unfortunately. Cheers to your mum! 💕
Son creaciones muy hermosas. Felicitaciones!
This bracelet is beautiful.
I am interested in finding the pattern for one where the beads are turned sideways instead of up and down. I’ve searched but can’t find it anywhere. Is it possible you may know how to start one like this? I’ve seen a few on Pinterest but there never is a pattern.
We don’t currently have a pattern for what you’re requesting Sandy, but I’ll add it to my to-do list to see about coming up with something 🙂 -Leah
do you have any tutorials that you show being physically done? I find it hard to read instructions, whereas if I see them being done my visual capability kicks in and I can understand. Thank you.
sorry not yet, but we are working on it, soon we will have you tube videos showing how to make and complete our jewelry products, we will let you know

Great tuto, thank you very much!
Can I make it thinner by starting with fewer super duos too?
Of course, it is a free-style pattern, you can make it thinner or wider. We are glad you like it.
If using two colors, do you need 2 tubes (25 grams ea) of both colors? Excited to make this. Thanks!
If you are using two colors you you have to buy one package of each color to complete a bracelet. You may also consider a mix. One package is enough for one bracelet.
This is beautiful and would work with the mini duos as well. How many grams of MiniDuos would be needed for a necklace? I love Russian spiral necklaces and think this would be a nice alternative to seed beads.
Hi Flo, we are not quite sure how many, but we agree with you that this would be a nice alternative to seed beeds.
