Getting Started
Leaf Fringe Tutorial

The initial seed beads

Jennifer VanBenschoten
To start your leaf fringe, you will need to weave your needle and thread so that you are exiting the bottom edge of the beadwork that you wish to embellish. If your thread is not long enough, add a new thread somewhere in the body of the beadwork and weave down so you are exiting the bottom edge of the beadwork.

Pick up the seed beads for the spine of the fringe. You can vary the number of beads for each fringe, or you can pick up the same number for every strand. For this example, I picked up 10 seed beads.

Pick up an additional 6 seed beads for the first leaf.
