Developed as an alternative to the Miyuki bugle bead, the Tubelet Bead is a cylindrical or tube shaped bead produced in the Czech Republic exclusively for The Potomac Bead Company. Unlike the bugle bead, with its sharp edges and thin bead wall, proning it to breakage, the Tubelet bead has a more substantial bead wall, and smooth, rounded edges. The thicker walls and smooth edges help prevent the bead from snapping or the thread from breaking. The Tubelet bead is great for filling in gaps in your beading projects, and works especially well in bezeling rivolis and chatons, and is even beautiful when used in basic stringing projects. This highly functional bead is available in Potomac Bead’s most popular colors and it pairs well with all Potomac Bead’s exclusive beads and crystals. Use your imagination and have fun creating with one of our latest bead designs!
