This kit contains all the beads, wire, floral stem tape and embroidery thread you will need to make the Rose Hand Tied Bouquet shown. It does not include the ribbon.
I designed this kit as a complement to my book Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets. The instructions are contained in the book. So you will need to purchase or own a copy of the book.
I have put together a basic range of colours. However, if you have a colour theme that is not included here, please email me. I will be happy to put together a custom kit for you.

Useful information about the Rose Hand Tied Bouquet
My ebook is a great introduction to the art of French beading. It includes video demonstrations of the basic French beading techniques. So, I will teach you how to make individual flowers, then how to turn them into bouquets. I have also included a video showing you how to assemble a bouquet.
Why am I telling you this? Well, I want you to feel confident that, whatever your level, you will be able to make this bouquet from the kit. I began French beading as a complete beginner. So, I can assure you, from my own experience, that anyone can do this!
The fact that the flowers are made on wire means that it is a little easier to put together this rose hand-tied bouquet shape. You can add the flowers as you make them and alter flower placement as you work.
The finished bouquet is a wonderful, traditional style. So, it will suit either a formal or an informal wedding. It is perfect for brides of any size, making it a really flexible option. Or, if you’re not looking for a wedding, this is simply a gorgeous bouquet for home décor!
