On a hot July day, there is no better place to relax than under a large maple tree, and watch the leaves flutter in the breeze. This Transparent Green exactly encapsulates the color of the sunlight filtered through the leaves.
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.
