The SuperDuo was one of the first 2-hole Czech Glass beads to win over the hearts of beaders everywhere. Its versatile, voluptuous curves & interlocking configuration has led to the creation of an unprecedented variety of patterns & designs featuring these Czech Pressed Glass beads. The SuperDuo is also a great companion to many of our CzechMates 2-hole beads.

Exclusive mixes work great in PATTERNS that use Duos in a fun, random fashion such as in a bangle design, a wrap bracelet or a flat pattern of duos.

BEAD QUANTITIES -
~ Some Czech beads are weighed out by the gram (such as the SuperDuo and MiniDuo beads). The quantity of beads per gram can vary depending on the finish & size of the beads. Below are some general approximations.

20 grams of SUPERDUOS - there are approximately 250 - 290 beads

10 grams of SUPERDUOS - there are approximately 130 - 145 beads

10 grams of MINIDUOS - there are approximately 195 - 225 beads
For the most part YES. However,
~ though we do our best to make our images as true to color & quality as possible; colors & finishes may shift slightly because of:

LIGHTING can make the color appear darker or lighter/brighter. Our photography is done in a light box with LED lights (similar to natural day light). The color may look slightly different indoors or in low light.

COMPUTER MONITOR settings, can cause hue & color to shift slightly from our original image.

PRODUCTION LOTS - With Cottage Industry production of Czech glass beads, a finish/glass can be slightly different when a new production batch is made. If this happens, I will tell you this in the descriptions.
You may find this in a few beads per pack. Clogged holes do occasionally occur in pressed 2-hole Czech glass beads. This does not mean its a defective package of beads. The Cottage Industry bead pressing process does yield occasional beads with defective holes that can slip through during production.
The glass is molten and pressed with rods between to form the shape & holes. After cleaning/polishing, beads are then finished. The entire process for 1 batch of beads, start to finish, can take upwards to 1-2 weeks. You may find occasionally that one of the holes is clogged. Please check all of the holes as you are stringing each bead. Checking the holes as you go is common practice among 2-hole beaders & makes for happier beading.
Czech glass beads are made of a base glass & sometimes one or two glass finishes applied to the base glass. There can also be cutting or fire polishing processes for certain bead styles.
* The cost depends on the base glass (raw material), the elements/chemicals needed to assist in the finishing process, & any specialty finishing/cutting processes.
~ For instance some Pink glass rods need a certain amount of Gold to achieve the hue of Pink within the glass.
To the best of my knowledge I will inform you about which beads are solid glass colors & which finishes are on these beads in the details of each item.
Since certain colors or types of glass are difficult or expensive to produce Czech glass beads are often finished to achieve new looks. Glass finishing processes took hold in a time when the era of costume jewelry began (around the 20’s). Czech glass bead makers have been expanding upon these finishes ever since.
*** It is important to note that abrasives & chemicals in perfumes & lotions can cause these finishes to deteriorate. Keep your seed beaded jewelry separate from other jewelry & don’t wear these pieces at times when you may cause damage to these finishes.
To the best of my knowledge I will inform you about which beads are solid glass colors & which finishes are on these beads in the details of each item.
~ The 1ST part of the name is referring to the base glass color, such as Turquoise Green or Royal Blue. These are both opaque glass colors.
~ The 2ND part of the name refers to the finish, such as Nebula or Picasso. The finish will often change the hue and appearence of the base glass.
For this reason the color name may not seem how the color is seen. The name is often to inform of the base glass and finish. If a name is given to a bead by a Distributor, I usually use that Industry name for consistency.
The best way to know the color is by the images of the beads. I try very hard to represent the colors and textures of the glass as true to life as I can. Item details will say if finish color changes from a previous batch.
