Tools required: Fireline Thread & Size 10 Beading Needle


  1. Begin by adding a needle to the longest length of fireline that you’re happy working with. Now thread through the large pearl and knot the thread around the outside of the pearl
  2. Begin covering the large pearl with seed beads – pick up 12-14 seed beads and thread back through the hole in the pearl from the opposite end so that the beads wrap around the pearl.
  3. Continue adding more seed beads to the pearl – not too many as you don’t want the beads to tightly packed.
  4. Now you’re ready to start adding the fringe to the ghost. Exit from a seed bead about 2/3 of the way down the pearl. Pick up 1 seed bead, 1 bugle, 1 seed bead, 1 bugle, 1 seed bead, 1 pip and 1 seed bead.
  5. Sew back up through the last bugle, seed bead, bugle, seed bead added and then back up through the beads that are covering the pearl.
  6. Keep adding to the fringe to fill in all the way around the bottom of the pearl. If you like you can vary the length of the fringe
  7. Now add the two black 8/0 beads to the ghost as shown.
  8. Finally stitch the brooch back onto the back of the ghost and you’re all done!
