Welcome to the Bead Flowers Website
Bead Flowers is the home of Katie Dean’s beadwork. Her beading journey started back in 2003 when she saw a book about French Beaded Flowers and these origins gave Katie her brand name. Katie is a self-taught artist and first began selling her beadwork when she was asked for a custom-designed French Beaded wedding bouquet. She has entered numerous international beading competitions, frequently winning awards for her work. In 2006 Katie was invited to write her first beadwork design for a magazine and she published her first beadwork book in 2010. In 2012 she began teaching beadwork, having gained City and Guilds qualifications in both teaching and bead-weaving. In 2014 she became freelance editor of Bead and Jewellery Magazine and in 2016 started working as a guest designer on Jewellery Maker TV.
On this site you can buy beading kits, beading patterns to make jewellery, gifts or French Beaded Flowers, all designed by Katie. Her beading books, including both print books and E-books with video demonstrations are also for sale on this site or you can download free tutorials to help you master different beading techniques.
