These 3-cut Beads have a copper metallic finish that is dark and beautiful. It is a good metallic finish that won’t rub off*

The Metallic Iris finish adds a metallic shine to the beads. The finish of the beads causes these beads to have color variations throughout the hank. The color variations are different shades of green, blue, purple, tan, and a deep pink. Although the colors vary, they all remain a solid color with a metallic shine. If your project requires a strict color pattern, these beads are not the beads to use. Instead you should use beads with a metallic finish to get the metallic shine that you desire.

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.

*With normal beadwork care precautions. To clean beadwork, we recommend spot cleaning with a damp towel (no soap, no detergent, definitely no bleach). Store in a dark place, away from direct sunlight (NOT on the dashboard of your car). Allow beadwork to dry completely before storing.
