Fabulous Fringe!

Lots of cool fashion trends are blowing in this fall, but the one I am most excited about is fringe! I know – in the past, fringe was seen mostly on cowboy boots and jackets, but it is back in fresh, creative ways.  This season, I have already seen fringe jewelry made with chain and suede, but I am a bead lover, so I had to find a way to create a beaded fringe necklace.

Since chain has been so popular in jewelry over the past year and is maintaining its reputation in fringe jewelry, I chose metallic Swarovski Elements Crystal Pearl beads that emulate silver, gunmetal and brass for my necklace. To create Flirty Fringe, I used the simple loop Beading Technique to create long bead strands that imitate flowing fringe!  To get the metal feel of these beads to stand out, I used eye pins in metals that coordinate with the metal color in the pearls. Now I have a statement necklace that will fit right in with this autumn’s fresh new trend, and it’s so easy to make and adapt with any colors. I hope you’ll try it, too!

Be Creative! – Sara
