I have started a growing fascination over French Beaded Flowers. With the right colors, they look so divine on jewel bouquets and hair accessories. I saw a basic tutorial online and made my own pattern free hand. At first, I painstakingly strung those tiny seed beads with my hands, till I found a way to make a DIY bead spinner. It helped me for some time but it’s still quite as frustrating since it doesn’t spin well to push the beads into the wire. This month, I finally received the bead spinner I ordered from Amazon and I was in heaven! Here are some of the French Beaded Flowers that I made freehand:
I still need to perfect this craft before I start to write French Beaded Flower Tutorials.
My newest toy, the Beadalon Bead Spinner. It did take the frustration out from stringing seed beads. One of the fun parts of making these flowers is to string the beads with a spinner. My dad saw me spinning beads one day and he told me that I was just playing and not working at all!
I’m a little sad that I won’t be able to create French Beaded Flowers for almost three months since I can’t bring all those beads and wires to Australia for border security reasons. If I put those beads in a pack, they look like the speed that I usually see in drug raids on tv. Yaiks! I’m really going to miss making those flowers.
I hope you liked my new creations. I’m excited to make French Beaded tutorials since my first business was about jewelry that involved a lot of wire wrapping techniques. I still have a long way to go but I am determined / committed to master it especially when I get home by the end of May.
