Making a Bugle Bead Chain
Making a Row of Bugle Beads!
Start with about 1 yard of thread on a needle.
(pic 1) Add 2 bugle beads. Pull beads down to within 4 inches of the end of the thread. Tie knot as close to bugle beads as possible. Leave the extra thread.
(pic 2) Go back through 1 of the bugle beads, either one will do.
(pic 3) Add 1 bugle bead. Go back
through last bead added, from the
opposite end of where the thread comes out. Go back through bugle bead just added.
(pic 4) Add 1 bugle bead. Go back through last bead just added, from the opposite end of where the thread comes out. Go back through bugle bead just added.
(pic 5-9) Continue adding bugle beads in this manner.

Making that Chain Tight!
A helpful hint on making the chain nice and tight is to pull snug by pulling toward the beads and not away from them!
If you pull the thread away from the beads to tighten them, like you do with seed beads, you weaken the thread by pulling it across the cut edge of the bead, and loosen the thread instead of tightening it.

If you pull the thread back toward the beads, your chain will be much tighter and you are pulling the thread across the other threads which helps protects it.

Tying a Knot?
The most common question I get is "how to tie a knot".!!!
Here are two examples of how I tie a knot.!!!
(pic 6) The red thread is the old thread. The green is the new thread.
(pic 7) Tie a figure eight knot.
(pic 8) Pull it tight. (I usually burn the extra thread off!! Some people say not to, it's up to you!)
(pic 9) Go back up through the last bead and keep going from where you left off.
