Miyuki bugle beads are narrow tubes of cut glass which are available in a cylindrical or twisted shape. Bugles are ALWAYS longer than they are thick and they're perfect for adding a cool effect to bead weaving, stringing, and embroidery. Because each bugle is longer than a seed bead, the same designs can take much less time to create. They string up fast!
Try them as spacers or as fringe on both earrings and necklaces. The motion of the fringe adds an attractive movement to any design. They're not just fun to wear, they add vibrancy and personality to your work. By adding them to a Russian spiral you'll get edge, dimension, as well as beauty.
Try adding a seed bead to the end of each bugle when stringing or weaving. Bugles are formed by cutting one continuous rod of glass called a cane. The edges of these beads can sometimes be a bit sharp and may wear out your thread over time. By adding a seed bead to each end, you'll add style and avoid any potential wear and tear troubles down the road.
Choose beading wire for stringing projects and ensure your creation lasts for many years. With beading wire you won't need a seed bead spacer but seed bead spacers help the beads flow and create a much smoother look. As your style evolves, bugles evolve with you. Fun and funky or elegant and glamorous, these classic beads adapt to your style needs.
