🇬🇧TIPS and experiences ⬇️ Extra long beaded fringe earrings ✨ Okay guys, may it looks easy to make this kind of jewelry, it is much harder in reality. I already respect so much those artists who are making this type of beadwork. This is my first REALLY LONG one, and I just learned a lot of lessons during the process:
👉Lesson1: Making the pattern is time consuming. Especially, if you are drawing it on a paper with pens. I just realized for me it is much better to make a pattern in a drawing app. I like to use Ibispaint. I made my own grid for design the pattern, and it is much easier to make modifications and corrections digitally.
👉Lesson2: Choosing the right thread is very important. I just realized I do not have a right thread. 😅😂 BUT I tried my best with my favourite size60 SoNo beading thread, which is way too thin for fringes. To achieve the desired results, I ended up to go through every fringe TWICE. That means almost twice as much time and twice as much thread to be used. So I ended up to order 4 different kind of thicker beading threads (size40 and size20's). It will be very interesting to try them out, I'm so curious which one will I like the most. Are you interested in this topic anyways?
👉Lesson3: Patience. Making such a big and long earring, and the whole process (starting from designing a new pattern) TAKES TIME.
😄And of course there are some advices as well what I already knew, but I just jot it down, may someone will read them:
👉Tip1: Buy quality beads. If your beads are not shaped perfectly, your fringe won't be straight. If your fringe is not straight, you won't be satisfied.
👉Tip2: The tension. Do not pull the thread too much, keep it a bit loose!
👉Tip3: Use only free-to-use patterns, purchase patterns or make your own ones! Never copy other's work without permission.
