Custom Made Extra Thin Bugle Beads

Description

I can not reiterate this enough - you can not, and will not find this style bead anywhere else. I have been searching for close to 20 years trying to find these beads, and I finally gave up and found a company to custom make them.

The beads measure approximately 4mm.

The beads have been created in a dark red garnet colored glass with a silver lining inside to give them a metallic effect. This is the same dark red coloring used on the original bows, which worked well for the studio as it appears a beautiful bright red when lit directly.

I realize these are expensive - but the entire order cost me $3,600, AND took 6 months to have produced. I am offering very limited quantities of these for sale and will be reserving most for work on my shoes.

You will need a very thin beading needle to work with these. I'd recommend a size 13 needle, but occasionally a bead or two will not fit over this size either. Anything larger will most likely crack the delicate glass.

The photo showing a completed pair of shoes is a pair I just finished, and the bows were made using these extra thin bugles. You are only purchasing the beads in this listing, not any finished product.

Quantity included is a small bag of beads, enough to do one or two pairs of bows. Also available in a 1 kilo bulk supply, which would probably last any slipper maker or bead artist a lifetime and then some.
