New Beads ~ Duos
These beads work up quickly into beaded beads to slip over a bead crocheted rope or as a button shape. I need to do a couple more rope beaded beads but will continue the Delica edging through the center as a tube to help stabilize the overall shape.
The most interesting discovery is that you can use the BCPD Software to help design patterns for Duo Ropes. My Computer Partner has this bright idea and tried it out. He needed a bit of help with getting his thread paths sorted out, but overall is pleased with the results of the experiment.
If you want quick gratification, these beads are just perfect. Due to their size, a project works up very quickly. However they also have some elegance to them and are not just a bunch of large chunky big beads.
