Where can I buy tri-beads? I can not find them in the stores around here.
Michaelss and Amazon have them
Here is an example of Tri Beads at Michaels:
They are very pretty beads ;) I remember them from Christmas crafts long ago.
Have a great day,
Ebay and Etsy sellers frequently sell these in large lots for dirt cheap prices! Just be sure to check out the sellers and make sure they have good feedback.
Post photos of your craft projects! That would be fun to see!

I use to make really cute tri-bead people key chains about 40 years ago and I forgot exactly how. Does anyone know how or have the pattern? I would love to teach my grandchildren so they can make Christmas gifts this year. Thank you so much.

Hello, I am a little confused, are you asking for the patterns for these Tri-bead key chains for as I look back into this post, April 14, 2011, I had posted that I have these patterns and you were a person that asked for them at that time! Please let me know if you still need them.
I have been searching all over for these patterns as well. I used to have a keychain made out of tri beads back in the 70's, but don't know what happened to it. If you still have patterns for tri beads would you be able to email them to me or make copy and mail it to me?
I need a pattern for the tri bead people. I was given a Keychain at church when I was a child and I really liked it, but I lost it. Now I would love to see how it was made. Thanks. Eileen
Eileen / I am also looking for that pattern- were you able to find it?
I would love to have some patterns for bead crafts, if you still have them
I would love to get this pattern to make with my granddaughter. Thank you for sending them if you can.
Do you still have the pattern for the teaching people out of beads?
I am looking for crafts to do with tri-beads. A friend gave me a lot of them and I don't know what to do with them. I have searched the internet, but can't find anything. Does anybody have any designs to do with them? I would appreciate it.

We have done dozens for a fund raiser and they go like hot cakes.
I have been crafting for over 55 years and 40 of those years includes beading. I have many many craft books and pamphlets for tri-beads so can you give me an ideas about what you are looking for. I would be more than happy to scan and send you different ideas.
You could melt them and make suncatchers.
Does anyone have any patterns for tri-bead crafts?
Does anyone have a pattern for the little people keychains that are made with tri beads. My great grandmother used to make them and give them to us as kids and I would love to pass them on to my grandkids.

Hi Myantoo, I remember those key chains also. I would love the patterns also if you would not mind sending them to me also. I would appreciate it so very much.
I am also interested in making the keychains of the lady and the man for these keychains. Does anyone know where I can locate the pattern to make these?
