Frisky Fringe Earrings

PROJECT E2331
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This design uses brick stitch along gold triangle frames as the base for playful feathery fringe in green, gold, and cream.
Instructions
By following the instructions below, you will make one earring. Repeat all instructions to make the second earring.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Bead Weave Circular Brick Stitch Around a Ring. Based on what you learned in the video, you will tie on your thread and weave one row of 13 green seed beads along one side of the triangle.
  2. Then watch our video: How to Add Beaded Fringe to Brick Stitch Bead Weaving. From what you learned in this video, follow along with the free PDF pattern to complete the fringe. Please note that the use of round beads is to give a little more movement to the fringe, so it is not intended to hang perfectly straight (see photo for reference). Note that for this fringe you will only have one gold seed bead at the bottom of each strand.
  3. Once you have added the fringe, tie off an weave in your tails.
  4. Open the loop of the earring hook, same as you would a jump ring, and attach it to the top of the triangle.
By purchasing the full lots of the items listed you will be able to make two pairs of earrings!
