Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well and are trying to stay cool. Here on the east coast, we are in a major heatwave this week. Lots of sun, hot temps, humidity and storms. It is just so….UGH! Need I say more. So, while I have been trying to cool off, a new bead has come into town and is starting to invade our website. It is a two-hole bead that is 4x2mm and looks exactly like a superduo. It’s like a mini-clone. The beads are called mini Duos™and they are made by Matubo.
Matubo also makes superduos, rullas, super unos, 6/0, 7/0,and 8/0 beads. The mini Duos™ will be featured in all of the same colors as the superduos. These are some really cute beads. If you love superduos you will definitely love the mini version. I can’t wait to get my hands on some and play. As soon as I do, I will be sharing them with you. But, for now, here are some examples of inspiration with the new mini Duos™ to hold you over.
And, don’t forget to visit our website Eureka crystal beads to get some of your own mini Duos™! Until next time, bead your heart out!

Love the miniduo1 and 2 and was hoping to see a beading pattern here. Would love to try to make the blue earrings.
Mini duos are so much fun to play with, am trying them out with some of their older siblings clothes, (I mean patterns, umm, yeah, right, patterns). I have Carolyn Cave’s book, “Beautiful Designs with Twins & SuperDuos”, think some of the designs you can transferMiniDuos for Super
Duos, and instead of size 11* seed beads, I am going to try using 15* seeds. I’m going to give it a try anyways! Won’t hurt to try, I have the beads, so why not?
Hi Linda, so great to hear from you. Thank you for these interesting tips. We are so glad you like these mini treasures! Have you seen a gallery of ideas on MiniDuos page on our website?
Love the new mini super duos. Is there a pattern for the ones that are in the shape of a tube (4th picture down)?? I would love to try that pattern.
aren’t they cute. We are working on the patterns. Should be available soon. Also, we have just gotten new colors in mini duos, they will go on line next week
