Learn French Beading!

Over 8 years ago I began the journey of making flowers from seed beads and wire. I learned quickly that I much preferred developing my own patterns and designs. I love the challenge of researching specific flowers and figuring out the perfect combination of techniques to create specific shapes and textures. In the beginning I was only selling my handmade beaded flowers, but in 2014 I expanded my business into the realms of teaching this spectacular art form, and I am really loving it!

My first book "Christmas Collection" was published in December 2017, and my second book "Learn French Beading: Beginner Course" was published February 2020.

In 2018 I changed my business name from Lauren's Creations to Bead & Blossom and I am working on expanding my tutorials, patterns, and courses to help others learn French Beading.

I've taught the basics of French Beading on my website - BeadandBlossom.com, and I even have free patterns available to download there which are not on Etsy that are perfect for those just starting to learn French Beading.

My patterns are well known, and loved, for their thoroughness, the plethora of high quality detailed pictures, and clear written instructions.

Disclaimer: Be very careful starting this hobby. It is highly addictive and may lead to hoarding seed beads and wire and overloading your home - and the homes of all your friends and family - with precious jeweled flowers. By purchasing any of my PDFs you agree that I will not be held liable for any obsessive behaviors that may ensue. :)

A Little History of French Beading:
French Beading is believed to have originated in the early 1500's, most likely associated with religious worship. Each petal and leaf is made separately by carefully wrapping the beaded wire using a variety of techniques, then assembling the individual pieces together for a complete flower. Traditionally these flowers were used as Memorial Wreaths (called Immortelles), Altar Decorations, and lavish floral arrangements. Some antique beaded flowers are still in existence today. If made and cared for properly, these flowers are heirlooms that can be handed down for many generations.
