Step 12 To start your fringe, string 1 size 6 seed bead and 1 size 11 seed bead.

Bring the beads down to the base of the thread, resting on top of the core seed bead. Note: The size 6 seed beads used for embellishment are the same color as the size 6 core seed beads, but are shown in a slightly lighter shade in the diagrams.

Step 13
Go back down through the size 6 seed bead.

Step 14
Go through the next size 6 core seed bead on the beading wire.

Step 15
String another size 6 seed bead and one size 11 seed bead. Go back down through the size 6 bead.

Step 16
Go through the next size 6 core seed bead on the beading wire.

Step 17
String another size 6 seed bead and one size 11 seed bead. Go back down through the size 6 bead.

Step 18
Go through the next size 6 core seed bead on the beading wire.

Step 19
Continue adding your fringe beads in the same fashion until your needle and thread exit the last size 6 core seed bead.

Step 20
String one size 6 seed bead and one size 11 seed bead. Go back down through the size 6 seed bead. Make the turn to go back down the beading wire in the opposite direction by going back down through the last size 6 core seed bead you just came out of.

Step 21
String one size 6 seed bead and one size 11 seed bead. Go back down through the size 6 seed bead.

Step 22
Go through the next size 6 core seed bead on the beading wire.

Step 23
Continue adding your fringe beads in the same fashion until you have made a second complete pass and your needle and thread are coming out of the last size 6 core seed bead.

Step 24
String one size 6 seed bead and one size 11 seed bead. Go back down through the size 6 seed bead. Make the turn to go back down the beading wire in the opposite direction by going back down through the last size 6 core seed bead you just came out of.

Step 25
Continue adding your fringe beads in the same fashion until you have made a third complete pass and your needle and thread are coming out of the last size 6 core seed bead.

Step 26
To finish your piece, youll need to end your thread, you will be tying a knot around the core beading wire. Once your thread gets too short to work with, around 2 or 3 inches, bring the thread behind the beading wire forming a loop of thread around the back of the wire.

Step 27
Bring the needle and thread down and around to the front of the beading wire, and thread your needle through the loop of thread made in the previous step.

Step 28
Pull the thread taut around the beading wire between two core size 6 seed beads, forming half of a square knot around the beading wire.

Step 29
Complete the square knot by knotting the thread around the beading wire once more, and pulling taut. Trim the thread with sharp scissors close to the knot.

Step 30
If you run out, youll need to add additional thread. Thread a beading needle with approximately 6 feet of FireLine thread. Tie an overhand knot, leaving a 1 inch tail thread as described in Step 9.

Step 31
Pass the needle through the core bead next to where you ended your previous thread. Tighten and knot around the size 6 core seed bead and trim the knot as shown in Steps 10-11.

Step 32
String 1 size 6 seed bead and 1 size 11 seed bead. Bring the beads down to the base of the thread, resting on top of the size 6 core seed bead. Return to stitching fringe as shown in Steps 12-14.

Step 33
Congratulations, you have learned the Anemone technique!
