The Opaque Navy Blue are a deep and rich blue that can add deeper colors to floral and geometric designs or they can be used in backgrounds of your creations. Use this to deepen fiery color combinations, contrast with bright colors, or add depth with other blues. Use -0167 Opaque Dark Blue or -0169 Opaque Dark Navy for shading with this color.

Opaque glass does not allow any light to pass through the bead. This gives these beads a solid look while still shiny. Many of our customers refer to this as the “regular” or “plain” beads as they are some of the most commonly found beads in both historical and contemporary indigenous bead art.

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 9/0 3-cuts measure approximately 2.6mm. We recommend a Size 10 needle and Size D Nymo thread for most bead art using 9/0 3-cuts. Sold by the hank. Hanks contain approximately 3,000 first-quality, glass beads strung on 10 strands. Made in the Czech Republic.
