Nexus Bracelet and Earrings

There’s another new 2-hole bead in town!

Nexus Bracelet

Czech “Silky” 2-hole beads are 6x6mm in size (similar to the CzechMates Tile beads) but the two parallel holes are on the diagonal, with a raised bevel on the top of each bead that runs opposite of this diagonal thread path.

The Nexus Bracelet is created by beading 7 or more separate motifs, which are then joined using seed beads and SuperDuo beads.

Single motifs make great Nexus Earrings

Linda Genaw has a list of online bead shops that sell Silky beads on her blog, Linda's Crafty Inspirations. Click HERE and scroll down to the end of the post for the list. She also has several free Silky patterns on her blog, including the Sophia Silky Bracelet (click HERE) and the Silky Deco Chain Bracelet (click HERE), both are truly gorgeous.

  1. I am just now trying out two-hole beads after 20 years of one hole beads. I held out for many years until I found the two-holes on sale for half price. This design is one of the best I've seen so far.
