During my necklace a day challenge, I tried to make a big dent in my almost half pound stash of dark gold bugle beads. I suppose I underestimated just how many of these beads I had, because even a 10 strand necklace didn’t reduce them by much. It occurred to me that I might be finding ways to use these beads until the end of time!
Well, instead of letting them loiter about in my bead stash, I thought it might be time to pass them on to a beader who has a bigger passion for bugles than I. The color is really fantastic and pairs up well with blues, greens and neutrals. If I was a little more ambitious, I would have loved to see them all go into one fantastic project, like Perie Brown’s woven bead scarf.
And since pairing up beads as a gift set is almost as much fun as creating with them, I’m giving these away with matte and silver lined gold bugles, and galvanized metallic gold 11/o Czech seed beads. As a palette, I think they’d be great for home décor projects like beaded curtains or lampshades.
