The Opaque White beads are the go-to white color for many bead artists. The regular opaque finish goes well with in any design. If you ask for white beads and we ask you to specify, we are not being facetious. With luster, pearl, AB, opal, matte, and more finishes available, there really several white beads that might work for you. These are the most popular though, and we recommend every bead artist have a couple hanks on hand.
Bugle Beads are long, hexagon-shaped tubular beads. They have a certain sparkle and flash, quite similar to 11/0 2-cuts. Bugle beads are popular for earrings and jewelry. For powwow outfit makers, bugles are a quick way to fill in large pieces of beadwork. However, since they are longer than seed beads, they can make beadwork very stiff. So, we do not recommend using these to fill pieces that need to move with the dancer. We acquired our selection of bugle beads when we bought the Czech bead stock from Flying Feathers Trading Post. We have decided not to continue this line, so we are clearing out what we have at these prices. Take advantage of this deal while you can.
These bugles measure 30mm in length. For beading bugles, we recommend a Size O Nymo thread and Size 12 Beading or Sharps needles. The Extra Long Beading Needles are also a great option if you need to string many bugle beads at a time. Sold loose in one ounce bags. Made in the Czech Republic.
