TOHO bead abbreviations in German Usage

Hello non German speakers,

These are the meanings of the abbreviations associated with TOHO bead names in German stores:

TRD = Toho-Rund ( Rocailles-ähnlich) Round seed beads PLEASE specify 11/0 or 15/0
TTR= Treasure Rund ( Delika-ähnlich) ....da kommen aber erst noch neue Farben.
TTRIA = Triangel ( dreieckige Perlen)

to complicate matters more, Treasure beads are NOT round but cylindrical. And Treasure beads have been discountinued in the USA. Only Aikos are sold as a substitute for Delicas. And if you use triangles, PLEASE specify size. We have triangles in 8/0 10/0 and 11/0

Seeing this is an international swap, I hope we can be somewhat flexible about the exact brand of beads. TOHO beads are very hard to find in the USA. I hope Delicas and Miyuki beads can be accepted for this round robin.
