On the Fringe – Learn Techniques For Making Stunning Beaded Fringe

I first started playing with beaded fringe 15 years ago when I learned how to make beaded amulet bags. Back then, I learned everything I knew about beaded fringe from old British beading books and magazines. This kind of beaded fringe was, well, to be blunt, really boring. Mostly composed of straight legs with maybe the occasional accent bead thrown in for fun, it was great for a beginner, but it just didn't do much for my beaded amulet bags and beaded necklaces.

Then I learned how to make twisted fringe, and everything changed! It was so much fun to create those twisted loops of fringe at the bottom of my amulet bags, and that was the technique that made me fall in love with beaded fringe of all sorts. Looped, leaf, stick, and graduated or layered, fringe soon found its way into just about every beaded necklace I made. Later, when I started working on bigger and more elaborate bead embroidery necklaces, I let myself really play with fringe. I started incorporating tiny gemstones, metal beads, glass beads of all sorts, and then some of my favorite natural shells and even bamboo tube beads. The more I played with it, the more I loved all the techniques for making beaded fringe.
