Transparent Medium Topaz is a good deep tan or light brown color. Any bead artist who works with earth tones, skin tones, or fire colors, should have a hank or two of this on hand. It is close in color to both -0892 Transparent Topaz and -0896 Transparent Dark Topaz, so please keep that in mind while designing.

Transparent glass allows light to pass through the bead, liked stained glass. This makes transparent beads appear extra shiny. Aurora Borealis (AB, for short) is the name for the rainbow affect. Transparent AB tend to have a subtle rainbow appearance that deepens the bead color. This is more pronounced on dark colors and warm shades. Use next to a matte bead to draw out the rainbow affect.

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.
