Information about project:

Super Duo Super star

Designed by: Lindsay McDonald

Difficulty: Beginner

Rating:

Follow Lindsay's fabulous tutorial and learn how to make your very own Super Star! The finished piece is incredibly versatile and can be used in many ways for your festive home decorations. Why not make a chain of them and drape it across the mantel piece? Or perhaps a co-ordinating set for your Christmas Tree? However you decide to use them, we hope you have heaps of fun creating this Christmas.

If you make your creations to sell, these cute little stars are a winner! They are so quick to make and have been really popular in my little  pop up shop at work. They can be made in endless colour combinations, contemporary, traditional, a single colour or a mixture. Lindsay xx

You will need: 
*42 x Super Duo, main colour (SD1)
*12 x Super Duo, accent colour (SD2)
*12 x size 8/0 seed beads (8/0)
*6 x size 11/0 seed beads (11/0)
*7 x size 15/0 seed beads (15/0)
*1 x 6mm jump ring
*30cms ribbon
*needle

Beginners Tip: If you are new to beading. Although this is quite an easy design, I would strongly recommend using two colours of Super Duo for your first attempt. With the changes of direction to navigate around the star it is quite easy to get confused how many Super Duos to pass through.

Our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

Step 1

Firstly, on an arm's length of thread pick up six SD1and six 8/0 alternately.
