Bugles are fantastic for beadwork. Pity they aren't used more. Here are some lovely bugle bead jewelry beading tutorials to try. You won't be disappointed! The first one is a pretty butterfly inspired necklace was posted by Elena Tvetkova over on biser.if.ua. It is a pictorial so there is no need to translate.
These next 2 tutorials combines 2 elements - the triangle shape and bugle beads! The designs are from Bead Diagrams. They are not hard to do and should work up quickly. The necklace pictorial uses really lovely purple iris bugles.
The earrings version can be found over here. Don't these look like little dancers with their skirts flouncing away?
Bugles also come in handy with the collar necklaces such as this one from Beads Magic.
This one also by Beads Magic is a stunner.
Who wouldn't fall in love with this one? The bugle bead necklace tutorial is by Bead Diagrams.
Preciosa also has this bracelet tutorial shared on Fire Mountain Gems which features very long bugles.
Not into really into beadwork? You can still manage this easy bugle bead bangle - the bugles join two bangles together. The tutorial is by Kathie over on Curious and Catcat. She didn't go all the way around but I think it would be a good idea for stability.
