Netting creates a more open style of beadwork, giving it a lacy feel. There are many variations of netting but a few basic rules apply to it. An odd number of beads is usually used to create the nets so there is a center bead to pass through. Netting can be done as a tube, as in the chain for the Reversible Pendant Lariat (page 58), or it can be done fl at, as in the Dewdrop Flower Bracelet (page 29). There are other variations as well.
Fringe is one of my favorite parts of beadwork; I love the way it swings and creates movement. Fringe can be long, short, full or anywhere in between. Seed beads make for better fringe; the rounded edges of the seed beads make them lay smoother than the straight edges of delica beads. Adding a few large beads to the fringe will create weight, and the fringe will usually hang better. As with so much beadwork, there are endless variations of fringe; here, I show you my two favorite types and the ones used most often in the following projects.
Flat Brick Stitch
Flat brick stitch usually makes for a sturdy piece of beadwork. Flat brick stitch always has a base row; I find it easier to do decreases rather than increases when working flat brick stitch, so I always start with the longest row as my base row. After the base row, the remaining rows are worked by adding beads and going under the existing threads from the rows and then going back up the beads.
