Katie demonstrates some of the more advanced techniques of French beading. She then teaches you how to use them to make individual flowers, including cornflowers, anthurium and morning glory, along with the other elements needed to make corsages for a bridegroom and wedding guests, such as sculptured leaves, and rosemary.
There are instructions for assembling the flowers into corsages in four designs that can be worn in a variety of ways: traditional buttonhole for male wedding guests, wrist corsage or handbag corsage as alternative ideas for the bridesmaids or bride’s mother.
The gallery gives more designs for inspiration, using flowers from this ebook and from
Katie’s first ebook, Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets. These beautiful beaded flowers
will make a truly unique accessory for your wedding and will last forever, so you
can treasure the memories of your special day.
