These pretty beaded beads make up quickly and can become quite addictive to make. They are totally self-supporting and once created can be used to make necklaces, pendants, earrings and more. They use Super Duo 2-hole beads and 2-hole triangle beads. The name Dva comes from the Czech word from ‘two’ so its my way to honor the homeland of the two-hole beads we use – the Czech republic. I first designed them after a fabulous beady visit there.


You will learn how to create the delightful self- supporting beaded bead. This is a great project to extend skills in creating beaded shapes. The beaded beads will vary in length depending on the choice of beads you make.

Petrona: The stylish Petrona beaded beads were inspired by the amazing structures of the Petrona Towers building in Kuala Lumpar and their shapes can add a point of difference to your jewellery designs. The completed beaded beads are self-supporting and can be used to make necklaces, pendants, earrings and more and we’ll look at how to vary the length of the bead so you can create wonderfully long or short beads to add diversity to your designs. The beads are relatively quick to make so you’ll be able create your own jewellery with them in no time at all.
