There are several shapes to choose from that have two threading holes. These gorgeous Silky beads have a smooth ridge across the middle on the top

and a smooth finish giving them their name. Each bead has diagonal threading holes that mean you would add seed beads into the gaps between them as they will sit point to point.

This beautiful blue pendant was designed by Nela Kabelova and uses shining Nib Bit beads in opaque white and cobalt blue alongside colourful Toho seed beads in different sizes. Follow Nela's project by clicking on the image above. You'll have plenty of seed beads and thread left over to make yourself a matching pair of earrings or even a delicate seed bead bracelet!

Candy beads from Preciosa are so much fun to work with. The beads are flat on one side and then slightly domed on the other, this makes them nice to wear against your wrist or form into 3-D shapes. This pretty bracelet is an example of how different types of beads can match with your glass shapes. The accents along the edge are Swarovski crystal bicones and the bracelet is finished with a Swarovski faceted round bead.
