Introducing The CzechMates Triangle

Announcing the CzechMates Triangle

CzechMates System BeadsThe Latest Revelation in 2-Hole Beading: The CzechMates Triangle

Nichole Starman, creator of the CzechMates system, has once again revolutionized beading! Today, Starman, Inc. is proud to announce the latest addition to the CzechMates system: the Triangle. The 6mm Triangle shares the same perfect hole spacing as the CzechMates Lentil, Brick, Dagger, and Tile. Pre-order now! Or, contact our Sales Team to become a launch partner.

Switch It Up With Interchangeable Shapes!

You've already seen that CzechMates Bricks and Tiles are frequently substituteable, such as in TrendSetter Eileen Barker's "Parisian Lace." The new CzechMates Triangle can be switched with the Lentil in other designs. Imagine your favorite Lentil patterns with the edgy look of the Triangle. Nichole Starman's "Breezeway Bangle" works well with Lentils, Triangles, or a mix of both! Enjoy the Breezeway Bangle pattern, as featured in Beadwork Magazine.

The Lentil is one of the most dynamic shapes of the CzechMates two-hole system. It adds a unique texture to beadwork designs and has limitless 3D sculpting possibilities. The simple, symmetrical structure of the CzechMates Lentil makes it easy to stack, stagger, and create frameworks not traditionally found in beading. Nichole Starman, creator of the CzechMates system, was inspired by the world’s most sophisticated spatial structures known to man: gothic cathedrals. Her Breezeway Bangle is a reflection of this concept and the pattern is now available to bead stores for class and promotional use. Her latest design, Rondelle Revolution, featuring CzechMates Lentils and Bricks, will be included as a special promotion with the upcoming December issue of Bead&Button Magazine.
