Three-Cut Beads, Tulip Needles, and more Rola

PRECIOSA Three-Cut Beads 
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 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.
