are cleaning out warehouse, to do some repairs. The more beads we sell,
the less we have to move. So, we are slashing prices to clear our
shelves. Get this deal while you can. There is a limited number of sets
available. Once they are sold out, they are gone. No substitutions on
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.
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.
