I think I just need to pick up a pile, and see what happens, but so far I've not made the time.
I have however used the one hole two sided peanut bead, and I love the result. It makes a nice textural and hefty piece of beadwork.
One thread path two sides. Almost has a cubic raw feel to it.
Now I hear of another new bead, fat like a super duo, but with only one hole. It is called the RIZO and it will be released mid December. Sabine Lippert has teamed up with Hynek Strand to develop this new bead and the German girls and English girls have been playing with it's possibilities with excellent results. Perhaps I need to get some RIZO's and have a play myself.
They will be available several places in Europe and in the U.S. at Beads by Blanche, not sure of the timing yet, but I intend to get on the list to have some!
