Recently, I was inspired to look at fringes, added to my loomed edges, in a different light. Not all 'f-r-i-n-g-e' has to be close together, bunched up or contemplated to lay very close. As a matter of fact, fringes are also just as dramatic when the space 'in between' each length of beaded length,
is equally considered.
This sample of fringing I completed, on a latest looming, shows the dramatic effect that can be acquired by considering using larger beads and spacing them further apart. These white Swarovski Pearls range in size of 4mm to 10mm. I spaced each line of beads the distance apart to consider how the largest beads, at the bottom, will be effected. They do not touch, yet are so close.
This design of fringing reminds me of a wonderful Bullion Fringe surrounding a 1920's upholstered over stuffed chair or even thick Gimp and Braiding. Layers of beads, attached at the loomed edge, can really make a simple pattern become a piece of loomed art.
I passed beads across the edge four times to create this fringe. Each pass added a layer of beading to create the build.
