hand roll buckskin fringe for fan

According to my elder / teacher, it can sometimes depend on how you are making the fan. One piece vs two piece. Some fan handles can be unscrewed from the rest of the fan.
If it is a two piece fan, as your cutting the length of leather to wrap the fan handle, you can cut the fringe parts, roll the fringes individuly on ones knee, then wrap the handle as normal...bead it.
If one does not want to deal with the moving fringes while beading, cut leather, wrap handle, bead to normal stopping point, then cut individule fringe, roll each carefully on knee.
The latter would be more difficult.
I'm sure there are others with different techiniques...as with most creations.
