Bugle Beads Beading Tutorials
I notice that bugle beads are not often used when making beaded jewelry. I don’t know why, but even I, myself, do not use bugle beads often. Maybe because I could seldom think of designs using bugle beads. But let us not forget about how wonderful bugle beads are.
Bugle beads are tiny tubular cut glass beads. There are a variety of colors available and sizes. In the old days, bugle beads are primarily used by dressmakers for dress embroidery. Today, they are now used for a variety of craft projects.
When it comes to jewelry making, bugle beads are great as spacers, for stringing and for making fringes. If you want to make tassels and dangling earrings, you can use bugle beads.
