Your French beaded Star flower kit contains
Your kit contains all the materials to make these star flowers:
- Size 11 seed beads in blue and green
- 4mm pearls for centres
- reels of wire in blue and green
- Floral stem tape
- Stem stiffening wire
- Embroidery silk
In terms of tools, you just need wire cutters. You might find a bead spinner helpful, but if you are just trying French beading to find out whether or not you enjoy it, then don’t worry about the bead spinner for now.
These materials will make 10-15 flowers (maybe more).
I have not given any colour options because these French beaded Star flowers are designed to mimic the real thing. These are typically blue. However, if you do want another colour of flower, just send me an email and I can sort that out for you.
