How do you add fringe to earrings made with seed beads?
Fringe your seed bead bezels for additional embellishment. This technique is an excellent method for adding dangling beauty to pendants. Begin with a pendant embellished with a two-seed-bead backstitch and conclude with a brick-stitch beaded edge. On a piece of paper, draw a cross and center the piece.
You should place a seed bead on the outermost row to the center line. Make a mark two beads to each side of the center. Add another mark after skipping two beads to each side. These are the starting and ending points of your journey. Bring your thread through the third row and the edge bead using a needle and thread.
Knot the thread so it is concealed beneath the beads. Thread the beads onto the thread, and then pass the thread back through the fourth bead from the end to create the fringe’s conclusion. Backtrack through all of the fringe’s beads and the entry bead.
- Pass through three beads in the preceding row.
- Then descend via the third bead from the initial fringe.
- Repeat steps 3, 4, 5, and 6 to produce an additional four fringes.
- Make a knot beneath the bead row.
- There are two beads between the fringes in this example.
- If there is to be no space between the fringe, the next edge bead can be passed through.

How are Eyepins attached to beads?
Creating connections with eyepins – Thread the bead onto the eyepin so that it gently rests at the pin’s eye. Ensure that there is enough wire above the bead to form a loop; if there is not, you may need to trim the end of the eyepin with wire cutters.
