Seed Bead Fringe Earrings Tutorial – August Bargain Bead Box

Seed Bead Fringe Earrings Tutorial


Hey everyone! Today’s tutorial is for a pair of long and flowing seed bead fringe earrings. The gold plated, closed connector component is the inspiration behind this design; it happens to be from the August 2020 Bargain Bead Box. As I state in the video, I am not a fringe earring “expert,” and I like to first use materials that I happen to have on hand. Regardless, these earrings turned out pretty sweet, and I wanted to share. 🙂 Are you a seed bead fringe connoisseur?! Please share your tips and tricks down below. 

This design features size 11/0 TOHO brand round seed beads, as well as Hex-cut, or MGB Japanese, seed beads. The hex cut provides additional sparkle, which looks beautiful in seed bead fringe, and other designs that flow. The amount of seed beads and beading thread that are needed for this project will depend on how full and long you would like your fringe, and what type of component you decide to use.
