French Beaded Flowers Kit
This French beaded flowers kit includes all the materials you will need to make three daisy flowers. I have labelled it as my intermediate kit as it builds on the techniques covered by the Beginners French Beaded Flowers kit. So, you will be learning how to develop the loop techniques that you learned in the earlier kit. This kit will also introduce you to the ‘basic’ technique which is commonly used to make petals, flower centres and leaves for French beaded flowers. The detailed instructions in the kit will also show you how to assemble flowers and finish them with beautifully bound stems.
If you have really been bitten by the French beaded flowers bug, then my ebook, ‘Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets’ will take you through all the basic techniques, showing you everything in videos. You can then go on to learn how to make a great range of flowers and, finally turn these into bouquets if you wish. Back to the kit: this is designed to keep things simple, so you will just need a pair of wire cutters and some clear glue to fix the ends of your stems. If you have read about French beading, then you may have seen references to using a bead spinner to string your beads. This is an enormously helpful tool if you are going to be making a lot of French beaded flowers, but it is not essential for this kit. The number of beads you will need to string for each flower is small enough to be done by hand.
