This Transparent Garnet bead is a beautiful dark red, reminiscent of the bouquet of roses a young lover brings to his sweetheart. This is a new addition to our selection and we’re very happy to be offering it.
Transparent glass allows light to pass through the bead, like stained glass. This makes transparent beads appear extra shiny. The beads are see-through, so the color of the stringing material can affect the appearance - transparent beads strung on black thread will look darker than the same beads on white thread.
Charlotte Cuts have one or two facets per bead, which gives them a subtle sparkle. They are particularly popular for old style beadwork. They are fairly uniform in shape and size. They can be used in virtually any beaded project, including applique or flat stitch, lane stitch, peyote stitch, loomwork, bead weaving, bead stringing and jewelry making.
Size 11/0 Charlotte Cut Beads measure approximately 2.0-2.2mm. Sold strung by the hank, consisting of 12 20-inch strands. Approximately 2,000 beads per hank. Made in the Czech Republic.
