PRECIOSA TWIN BEADS
Click on image to browse products
Here you will
find Twin Beads and Imitation Super Duos that we call Pseudo Duos and both made by Preciosa in the Czech Republic. Twin beads are slightly smaller than the SuperDuos,
but still measuring 2.5 x 5.5 mm. The hole measures approximately 0.8mm. They are more oval than the SuperDuos
and because they are a seed bead, are less uniform.
Psuedo Duos are imitation Super Duos and are similar but slightly more rectangle. They generally can be used
in patterns where Twins and Super Duos are required, however because they do not fit together like Super Duos, cannot be used
in all patterns. They come in additional colors currently not available in the Super Duos. We will discontinue
these beads as Super Duo production increases.
Both are sold in a 2 1/2 inch tube containing approximately 10 grams depending on the finish. There are approximately
120 beads in each tube.

utilizing either of these beads in your pattern. Feel free to ask for advice.
