Lesson Six: Ruffles
Ruffles are an add-on technique that can be built onto any of the base techniques. You will need to know the Basic Frame technique before beginning this tutorial.
In French Beading, loops of beads can be sewn around the edges of a petal to make Ruffled edges.
I’m going to show you two ways to make ruffles: the traditional method, and a new method I developed which I have suitably named “ruffle-as-you-go”. Both methods work just as well, so pick whichever way is easiest for you to work with.
