Tri-beads are another new bead from the Czech Republic. They are triangle shaped approximately 4.5 mm wide and 1mm thick with a hole of 1 mm in diameter. Originally the idea of bead designer Lisa Kan (author of Bead Romantique), this new shape can be used as an embellishment in bead weaving designs, to create angular textures in beaded ropes or simply strung.
They are sold in a flip top box containing approximately 7.5 grams depending on the finish. There are about 260 beads in a box.
