I've got a few more projects I can now share with you. My new book of French Beaded wedding bouquets is really, really close to publication. It's currently available on pre-order from my website and it means I can start revealing some of the projects from it, so here we go...my first three wedding bouquets...full instructions in the book!
words escape me..................... wowser
Stunning work! Incredible really. Most beautiful and so on and so on........................
Greetings from Karin.
OMG, they're so beautiful! They look so real! If my doctor goes ahead with the surgery next year, maybe I'll be able to do something like that once the tendons in my thumb have been cut, and I'm able to regain more ROM. That would be super!
These are absolutely amazing - gorgeous...wow. I can't think of enough words to describe how beautiful they are. You are a true artisit.
I'm not into French beading, but wow, this is wonderful! True art!
Wow... these look absolutely incredible! I've never tried my hand at French beading... but these bouquets do make it look tempting...
These are absolutly stunning.
I have this technique on my "Gotta Try This" list. Someday, I may actually get around to it.
Until then I'll just enjoy looking at yours.

May the beads be with you!
I've just popped back onto the forum after a couple of busy days and seen all these lovely comments from everyone - thank you so much. It's really made me smile
A couple of you have asked about the book. Well, I don't have a concrete publication date yet, but I'm expecting to get the text back from the publishers any day now for me to proof. They're aiming to publish it before Christmas. Time is creeping along though, so I'm not quite sure if it's going to make it out before the big day, but if not, it won't be long into the new year. If anyone is interested, it's available for pre-order from my website, with some free beads to thank people for their support, so do take a look (www.beadflowers.co.uk)
I know French beading doesn't get quite as much coverage as the bead weaving, but I really love this craft - it's what got me started on beading in the first place, so I'd be really honoured if I've made some other people want to give it a try as well!...and Val, I do hope your surgeon can do the op, so you can get into all those new beading adventures!
Amazing! Love, love, love them all!!!
Thanks, Kate! Afaic, the more, the merrier, you know?
