Czech seed beads in the shape of a short cut cylinder are called PRECIOSA Three-Cut Beads (also known as PRECIOSA Three-Cuts or PRECIOSA 3cuts). They 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 Three-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.
PRECIOSA Three-Cut Beads 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 a color palette of the PRECIOSA Two-Cut Beads,
This special seed beads are ranked among the most exclusive goods in the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads™ brand due to the demanding nature of their production.
