Bugles

Czech seed beads in the shape of a roller are known as PRECIOSA Bugles or rods. The production technology for PRECIOSA Bugles is similar to that used for PRECIOSA Rocailles, however the cut rods with various shaped holes (round, square or hexagonal) are not rounded, but are merely fine tumbled in order to smooth off any sharp edges and heat polished. In order to produce an increased and more effective sparkle, PRECIOSA Bugles are produced with a twisted or extra twisted hole or surface which in PRECIOSA Bugles can be round or square, straight or twisted. The variability of the PRECIOSA Bugles is therefore enormous.

The size (or length) of PRECIOSA Bugles is given in a so-called linear series from 0.5'' to 15.6'', where the bugles with the smallest size correspond to ca 1.6 mm and the largest correspond to ca 35 mm.
