Bugle Bead Madness





I inherited about 6 pounds of Toho glass bugle beads from a student of mine who miscalculated his quantity in a Fire Mountain Gems group buy. I've been working on different patterns using them, and even I'm surprised at how versatile they can be. The thing about bugles is that they can have sharp edges which cut thread, but if you use Fireline, things should be just fine. Here is a sampling of what I've come up with. The patterns are available at http://www.bead-patterns.com/
