How to add Fringe to a Seed Bead Bezel

Embellish your seed bead bezels even further with fringe! This technique is a great way to add dangling beauty to your pendants. Start out with a pendant embellished with a two-seed-bead backstitch and a finish with a beaded edge using the brick technique.
STEP ONESTEP TWOSTEP THREE
Make a cross on a piece of paper and center the piece on it. You will want to position a seed bead on the outer most row to the center line. Skip two beads to each side of center and make a mark. Skip two more beads to each side and make another mark. These will be your starting and ending points. With a needle and thread, bring your thread through the third row and through the edge bead. Knot the thread so that it is hidden under the beads. Thread the beads on to the thread, then go back through the 4th bead from the end to create the end of the fringe.
STEP FOURSTEP FIVESTEP SIX
Go back through all the beads of the fringe and through the entry bead. Go through three beads in the row above. Then back down through the third bead from the first fringe.
STEP SEVENSTEP EIGHTSTEP NINE
Repeat steps 3, 4, 5 and 6 to create four more fringes. Make a knot under the row of beads. In this example there are two beads in between the fringes. If you don't want any space between the fringe, you can go through the next edge bead.
