This Storm Duo bead necklace tutorial is a great place to start if you are wanting to try these beads.


The Storm Duo ‘Fire’ necklace uses the following materials:

  • Storm Duo beads
  • Iris Duo beads
  • 4mm pearls
  • Size 11 Miyuki seed beads
  • Your choice of clasp
  • Your choice of thread

I have all these supplies available to purchase right here>>

If you haven’t come across them before, both the Storm Duo and Iris Duo beads are exclusive to the Potomac bead company. They are both shaped two-holed seed beads. And they happen to dovetail extremely well together! So, this is a great project for getting to know some new bead shapes.

Experience and Techniques

I suggest that this project is best for intermediate beaders.

You are going to be using basic thread paths to make the pendant section and add the side embellishment. I used a spiral rope for the necklace. Then, you will need a tiny bit of basic herringbone to attach the clasp section.

About the Storm Duo Bead Necklace Tutorial

The Storm Duo bead necklace tutorial is comprehensive. I have included a full page of instructions showing you how to use the Storm Duo and Iris Duo beads. Every step is written out and also illustrated with diagrams. Then, I have added some detailed photos to show some of the elements of the necklace.

So, if you’re happy to try something new, I have guided you through carefully in these eight pages of instructions.

From time to time, I do a little design work with the Potomac company, so I get the chance to try out some of the new beads. This necklace design is one of those ‘experiments’. I simply wanted to see how the two-holed beads would work together. But I was also keen to include a lot of familiar seed bead work too.

So, if you’re thinking about making a step into the world of multi-holed beads, this project won’t take you too far away from your basic seed beading!
