Topics: Bugle Bead Stringing Tip
I finished a great design using bugle beads and it fell apart after wearing it only a few times. What went wrong?
Bugle beads sometimes have rough edges that cut into beading wire or thread. To save your thread from abrasions, place a seed bead after each bugle bead. Adding seed beads will only slightly change the length of your design, and will leave you happier knowing your thread or beading wire is protected.
