Czech Preciosa 3-Cut Seed Beads: 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 Preciosa seed beads in the shape of a short cut cylinder are known as PRECIOSA Three-Cut Beads (also known as PRECIOSA Three-Cuts, PRECIOSA 3-Cut or PRECIOSA 3cuts), and 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 3-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.
