I’m pretty much in love with the flower-shaped beads, with Lily Flowers being my favourites. I used them in the Toscana bracelet that was my contribution to the International Beading Week (you can still download it as a gift), and at the moment I’m working on a new design with it: a bead embroidered jewel. I haven’t decided yet if its going to be a statement ring or a brooch and pendant in one. I will show it to you (and share the video tutorial on the Beadingschool Youtube channel) as soon as it’s finished.
Despite all the spontaneous positive feelings that are emerging when I see the flower beads, I have to admit that they are not the easiest ones to use in our beadwork.
Or, at least, not the easiest ones until we know what to keep in mind when working with them.
