“Anishinaabeg are woodland peoples of the Great Lakes. Forests, trees, and plants have great meaning for us. So do green colors. When I look at this Transparent Dark Green bead, I imagine myself in the deep woods on a summer’s day, gazing up through the canopy of maple and oak trees. The sun’s light is filtered through the many layers of leaves, giving the world around me a green glow. This place is full of life; it’s where medicines and food grow. Where creatures live and roam. Where birds sing and squirrels chatter. It is home for the mind and the spirit.” – Autumn “Ellie” Mitchell, Owner of Bead & Powwow Supply

Transparent glass allows light to pass through the bead, liked stained glass. Transparent Luster beads are shinier and flashier than their regular transparent counterparts. The luster affect tends to lighten the colors a little, so they can be used with regular transparents for shading and depth. Use with matte beads to draw out the shine of the luster beads.

2-cuts are great for powwow beadwork. They have a certain sparkle and flash but are more economical than other cut beads. They do have sharp edges on the ends and can cut threads. We do not recommend these for peyote stitch, bead-weaving, loomwork, or any other beading technique where the ends touch threads. For applique/flat stitching, if you’re having a problem with broken threads, here is our advice. When pulling the thread through the bead, be sure to pull it straight out of the hole. Do not pull it up and against the edge, this can cause your thread to fray and eventually break.

Size 11 (or 11/0) 2-cuts measure approximately 1.9mm. The hole of the bead is at least 0.7mm in diameter. Sold by the hank; hanks contain 12 20-inch strands. Made in the Czech Republic.
