CHARLOTTE BEADS

Charlotte cuts are most often available as size 15° or 13° seed beads that have part of the surface of the bead cut (or "faceted") to produce more shine. Size 11° Charlottes are also available but harder to find. Charlotte is specifically a term for single faceted beads but can also be used when 2 or 3 facets are added to the bead to add more sparkle. Charlottes with 2 or 3 cuts to the surface are also known as "two-cut" or "three cut" beads but "charlotte" is the generally accepted term for this group of seed beads, though some choose to use the term more specifically for beads with one cut surface, preferring two /Wikipedia/
