Author Dalene Kelly expertly guides readers through this beautifully illustrated guide to the timeless art of French-beading--a craft that dates its origins back several hundred years and that now is making a huge resurgence. Includes step-by-step instructions for making 38 different flowers, such as snapdragons, coral beans, pansies, irises, tiger lilies, gardenias, and more. Crafters will quickly learn the techniques for stringing beads and fashioning them into floral works of art and then create these four stunning projects--a cymbidium corsage, rose hair barrette, Shasta daisy napkin ring, and rose bud bridal veil. Crafters and beaders alike will find this book to be innovative and inspiring.
Kelly has been actively French beading for more than 15 years and teaches the technique to others at her French-beaded Flower business in Ohio.From Library Journal:
French beading as a craft dates back to 16th-century European peasants, who made flowers and wreaths from discarded beads. The technique involves stringing seed beads on wires and bending them into three-dimensional shapes. French-beaded flowers are surprisingly realistic and virtually indestructible. These step-by-step projects are for almost 40 individual flowers with leaves that can be placed in vases, worn on hats, or made into corsages. The finished products are quite lovely and unlike any other artificial flowers. This is an excellent choice for public library craft collections.
