In class we will create funky fabulous fringe earrings on felt using flatback glass rhinestones andseed beads! These styles are perfect for Halloween party wear and costumes. In this document weoffer three ideas to get your creativity flowing. In class we will demo Design 1, placing rhinestones onfelt, cutting around the design, and bead weaving seed beads using brick-stitch technique. We willfinish with fringe strands along the base.
Tip: There is an overnight glue dry step that we will speed up by finishing with a worked-ahead sample that has had time to dry. You can work Step 1 ahead if you already have experience with gluing flat back rhinestones.
