French beaded flowers found their beginnings from European peasant folk art. Beaded flowers were also popular in Italy, where many of the beads were made. Eventually beaded flowers found their way to England, and were very popular in the Victorian era. Throughout history this technique has been popular and has been used to adorn the home.
In this class you will learn how to transform your beads into elegant and beautiful blooms. You will learn how to make several different flowers and leaves that you can turn into a corsage, a garland, or simply create blooms to rest in a special vase. The flowers that you make will average between 3/4" to 1-1/2" wide; all of these will use size 11 seed beads. Additional beads will be used to create centers and other elements.
Lesson 1: In this class you will learn the difference between bead finishes, how to chose your pallet, what size beads can be used, and the basic techniques to make your flowers.
Lesson 2: In this class you will learn how to make the leaves, fern, and beaded extras. Different finishing techniques will be discussed as well as options for your finished projects.
