Bugles are elongated and have a slender cylinder shape. At 3mm in length, they are only 1.5mm thick and have a 0.7mm hole.
You can do many different things with bugles. String them together to make a necklace, especially beautiful with several strands next to each other. The bugles will stay neatly on top of each other if you always place a 15/0 or 11/0 seed bead between them, but you can do without.
It is also possible to string the bugles tightly next to each other, which is known as ladder stitch. Another option is to use them with peyote stitch, for example as a middle lane in a bracelet with delica beads or f course in a figure with brick-stitch. But what they are probably best known for is for netting, because the bugles keep the diamonds in good shape.
The metallic colors are very popular, as the colors bronze, copper and gold are ideal to combine with most other colors. Metallic finish is applied over an opaque glass bead to create the appearance of a metallic surface.
