New Potomac Beads Shapes!

In box October boxes we are introduced to two brand new Potomac Beads multi-hole shapes! How fun! It’s great the new shapes were included in both the base and the XL versions, so all subscribers have the opportunity to play around with them.

The Quadbow is a 4-hole curved shape that measures 6x15mm. These are designed to form a circle when 4 are put together. Potomac Beads will be selling these in 28 introductory colors in packages of 20.

The PieDuo is a 2-hole triangular shaped bead. This bead is uniquely manufactured to fit 4 onto a circular shape.  PieDuo beads are 6x8mm and have an exterior curve to fit perfectly inside of the Quadbow beads.
