Wire wrapping briolettes is a classic technique for making them into dangles, and they look lovely, but sometimes it’s nice to find a different way of doing things.

In today’s video I show a simple technique for dangling and accenting briolettes and other top drilled bead & pendants with seed beads.

You can make these as long as you like, and accent them with any beads you want.

Although I turned mine into a pair of earrings, you could just as easily make a necklace pendant, dangles for a fringe or even for a bracelet.

Although it looks like it might be complicated and time-consuming, these beads only take a few minutes each to create.
