The Transparent Emerald bead is a beautiful blue-ish green, like tropical waters. It is a great color for water-themed pieces, beaded turtles, florals and geometric designs.

Silver-lined beads are a transparent bead with a silver-lining in the center. This silver-lining brightens these beads into a flashy, glitzy option. The silver inside the bead can tarnish if it is not cared for properly. To prevent tarnish, store beads in a dry, dark place. If there are silver-lined beads on your powwow outfit, allow it to dry before storing it in a breathable container.

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.
