#5, 12mm Czech Bugle Bead, Purple Iris

Bugle Beads are thin, smooth tubular glass beads used for beaded fringe, embroidery, costumes design, jewelry, incredible art pieces and much more. They can be strung, sewn on or glued to many different materials. Due to the nature of this product and how the glass is cut, each Bugle Bead will differ slightly in length and/or width; they are occasionally not uniform. I would always have either an emery board or a metal file on my bead desk to file the edges of the bugle beads till they were smooth. Purple Iris is sometimes called Red Iris.  There are approximately 360 beads per ounce for a #5, 12mm, 1/2 inch bugle bead.
