Our 3mm Japanese bugle beads are slender tubes of glass similar in shape to liquid silver beads. With smooth holes and clean-cut edges, these beads are beautiful for stringing as well as for needle weaving. They can be used with a size 10 beading needle and size D beading thread with most off-loom stitches and for bead embroidery. When weaving them with right-angle weave, you may have better results using a size 12 needle. They will also accommodate 22 gauge wire and .019" beading wire. Check out our Peyote Stitch, Right Angle Weave, Herringbone, Netting, Brick Stitch, Bead Embroidery, Bead Fringe, Kumihimo, Bead Crochet, and More Bead Weaving Techniques for a variety of ways to use seed beads in your designs.
