In the e-book, ‘Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets’ (published by Vivebooks, an imprint of Rainbow Disks), award winning bead designer, Katie Dean, teaches you how to make beaded wedding bouquets using the traditional craft of French Beading. The book includes over an hour of comprehensive videos demonstrating all the techniques you will need to make these beautiful flowers. The opening chapters give you advice about choosing the flowers and style for your wedding bouquet. Katie then provides step-by-step instructions and diagrams to show you how to make individual flowers including rose, lily, gerbera, stephanotis, gypsophila, orchid, ivy, leaves and fern. Katie then goes on to share her designs for four wedding bouquets, each in a different style (pomander, hand-tied, teardrop, cascade), with step-by-step instructions for creating each bouquet. The last chapter gives ideas for other wedding accessories, including floral tiaras, hair ornaments, corsages and table decorations. Suitable for all levels – even those with no previous experience of French Beading. The very user-friendly format allows you to navigate easily between projects and technique videos and instructions, so it couldn’t be easier to learn this beautiful craft.
Katie has been creating stunning custom-designed beaded wedding bouquets and wedding accessories for brides around the world since 2004, so don’t miss this opportunity to let her teach you how to create your own ever-lasting keepsakes for your special day.
