PRECIOSA Karo™ Bead

Designed by: Romana Tschunkova

We present the new two-hole PRECIOSA Karo™ Seed Bead.  Like PRECIOSA Twin™, this new two-hole seed bead is also made from flat 5 mm wide glass tubes which have been cut into squares. The width of the basic tube and the length of the cut are therefore always the same. This flat, square seed bead is an ideal complement to the twin range. It is excellent when used to create geometric patterns. You can create both highly effective, yet simple, flat brick ornaments or three-dimensional, almost architectural accessories.

The Latest in 3Cut Beads!

With 15 new colors in our collection, 
we now have forty-nine 9/0 3cut beads
available in loose or strung for you to choose from.

 

These are the 3 cut 9/0 seed beads used by artisan
Stephanie Pangowish for the necklace.
