Czech 3-Cut Seed Beads, 9/0: PRECIOSA 3-Cut seed beads are multi-faceted and are highly reflective due to the way the bead is cut. Due to the high visibility of 3-Cut beads, they are often used for costumes, evening & bridal wear, and Native American beadwork. Each bead is unique and will differ slightly.

Czech seed beads in the shape of a short cut cylinder are known as PRECIOSA Three-Cut Beads (also known as PRECIOSA Three-Cuts or PRECIOSA 3cuts). They are made using a similar technology to PRECIOSA Two-Cut Beads, i.e. by cutting glass tubes with a round hole and a hexagonal surface.

After this process, the PRECIOSA Three-Cut Beads are cut again on special cutting wheels while strung on a wire which results in the reduction of the edges at the ends of the seed beads and the cutting of several randomly placed facets.

Each PRECIOSA Three-Cut Bead has a unique shape, and are made in five basic sizes ranging from 1.6 mm to 2.5 mm (from 12/0 to 8/0 in the zero series).

Color range of Three-Cuts is based on the color palette for the PRECIOSA Two-Cut Beads, and are ranked among the most exclusive beads in the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand due to the demanding nature of their production.
