Matsuno bugle beads 3mm are high quality tube shape glass beads from Japan. We stock them in a wide selection of colours to suit your beading projects. They are ideal for beadweaving, ladder stitch, brick stitch, netting, bead embroidery, embellishments and jewellery making. 3mm bugles are well suited to fringing so they add elegance and drape to a beaded fringe. GJBeads has a selection of projects that use bugle beads you can see the patterns here.
These short Matsuno 3mm bugles are beautiful Japanese beads with a 0.7mm hole. They can be threaded with a standard Size 10 Beading needle onto Nymo, KO or Fireline beading threads. You can also thread them without a needle onto Beadalon 7 Strand Bead Stringing Wire. We recommend the 0.3mm wire for this. Once you have crimped the wire onto the clasp you will be able to tuck the tail end of the wire inside the 3mm bugles that are closest to the clasp, giving a neat and professional finish to your jewellery.
These short, slender 3mm bugles are available in beautiful colours and finishes, from opaques and silver lined to frosted AB. Choose bugle colours so that they match with the other shapes and sizes of beads in your project, or contrast the colours and textures but be sure to enjoy the process.
Matsuno 3mm bugle beads are available in 100g bags containing approximately 5800 beads or 9g tubes containing approximately 530 beads. They are 3mm in length, have a diameter of 1.8mm which matches our Matsuno Size 11 seed beads. Have fun creating projects with these bugle beads.
