Transparent Smoke Topaz is a medium brown, reminiscent of fresh acorns that drop from oak trees as autumn sets in. This is vibrant brown color perfect for florals, geometric detail, and earth-toned jewelry.

Transparent glass allows light to pass through the bead, liked stained glass. Transparent Luster beads are shinier and flashier than their regular transparent counterparts. The luster affect tends to lighten the colors a little, so they can be used with regular transparents for shading and depth. Use with matte beads to draw out the shine of the luster beads.

3-cuts are popular for indigenous bead art, especially beaded earrings and powwow beadwork. They are especially shiny, glittery, and glamorous. The manufacturing process includes reheating the beads to add random facets, which adds extra flashiness. This process is labor intensive and adds to the manufacturing costs, which is why these are some of the more expensive Czech beads on the market. Their unique shape makes 3-cut beads great for applique, lane stitching, and bead-stringing but they are unsuitable for peyote stitch, loomwork or other projects requiring strict uniformity.

Size 12/0 3-cuts measure approximately 1.9mm. We recommend a Size 12 needle and Size Nymo thread for most bead art using 12/0 3-cuts. Sold by the hank. Hanks contain approximately 3,000 first-quality, glass beads strung on 10 strands. Made in the Czech Republic.
