Use seed beads in groups of threes to create a scalloped edge around your design.

A picot edge makes for a perfect embellishment to beaded focals. This type of beaded edge uses three beads in each flourish to create a unique fringe for your designs. This simple technique will add flair to your finished piece, catching the eye and drawing it toward that perfect cabochon or bead.
