These packs of GemDuo beads each contain around 10g. This is about 75-80 beads. The beads themselves measure about 8 x 5mm. They are diamond shaped (as you can see!) and they have two holes through them.
GemDuo beads are an innovation from the Beadsmith in the US. They mix really well with other seed beads. So, if you scroll down below the product description, I have added some links to patterns.
GemDuo Beads – colouring
The GemDuo beads are available in a really wide range of colours. These include the spectacular ‘backlit’ colours. To achieve this effect, the factory applies a special coating. So, it looks as though the beads are literally glowing from within.
I have started small with just a few choices. If you are looking for a particular colour, but cannot see it here, then please let me know. I can order in on request. Plus, I will be looking to increase the range of colours I have, if the demand is there.
We have all come across that same problem. You see a bead colour on your screen and think it looks great. So, you order the beads. Then, your pack arrives and the colour is totally different from what you were expecting. You even wonder if the shop just packed the wrong beads by accident…!
The fact is, between camera settings, lighting and different computer screens, it is very hard to convey the true colour of beads in an online setting. So, if you are trying to colour match and you’re not sure what will work, you can order a sample.
I will send you 1 GemDuo (enough to check the colour). Your sample also includes a discount code. So, if you come back here and buy some beads from me, use the discount code, then the cost of your free sample will be refunded against your order.
Terms and Conditions
You can redeem your coupon against any beads, so it does not have to be the same as your sample. For example, if you ordered a sample of pearls, but decided they weren’t right. You could still come back and redeem your sample coupon as you buy some seed beads.
The coupon has no expiry date, but you can only use it once. If you have multiple coupons, you can use them all, but you must add each coupon code separately in your basket.
Coupons cannot be used to get a refund against a pattern or kit.
Pricing and Stock
Please make your colour selection and pack size from the drop-down menu and it will display the appropriate price.
I carry limited stocks in all the colours of the GemDuo beads. So, make sure you grab your beads when you see them! You can place items on back order and delivery will take up to two weeks.
If your item is out of stock, I will email you with an estimated delivery time. So, you can then choose whether to continue with the order, or get a refund if the timing won’t work for you.
If you have any other questions, just let me know!
