Eureka Crystal Beads has moved to a new location in May. You may have noticed that we didn’t close even for one day and all your orders were shipped without a delay. We admit that May was a little stressful but we have survived and were able to expand our offering. We have added many new shapes of beads, clasps and Tulip beading needles.
Gem Duo beads which are diamond-shaped and have two parallel holes going through the length of a bead. Gem Duo beads are very similar to DiamonDuo beads. They have the same size and the same hole placement. The main difference is in a cut (shape of facets) and that Gem Duo has two faceted sides unlike DiamondDuo which has one flat side. Both shapes are interchangeable in almost all designs.
GemDuo beads have a gently beveled top with a raised ridge in the center on both sides of a bead.
DiamonDuo Czech Glass beads have one flat side and one beveled side.
DiamonDuo and Gem Duo are easy and fun to work with and the jewelry made with them looks spectacular. See examples of free patterns: beaded bead, bracelet and earring:
