We're happy to announce that we acquired the entire Charlotte Cut/True Cut stock from Beader's Paradise in Blackfoot, Idaho. Their business has been in the family for several decades and acquired a lot of beads in Europe. We found out about their closure through a shared Facebook post. Within 60 minutes of seeing that post, we were on the phone with Marietta, discussing her bead stock. We decided to purchase the remaining Charlotte Cut beads. There so many, that it took us a while to count, document, label, photograph, and list them. We're so glad that they're now online and we can offer these wonderful projects to our customers!

Size 13/0 Charlotte Cut Beads measure approximately 1.6-1.8mm. Sold strung on "short" hanks, consisting of 8 12-inch strands. Approximately 2,000 beads per hank. Made in the Czech Republic.

Charlotte Cuts have one or two facets per bead, which gives them a subtle sparkle. They are particularly popular for “old style" beadwork. Size 13/0 is small enough to get a lot of details into earrings and florals. They are also fairly uniform so they work well for peyote stitch and loom-work. We recommend a Size 13 beading needle and OO Nymo thread for these beads.
