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.


Thank you

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

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.

Hi Dora,
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.
