A couple of years ago I purchased a kit from a Sydney Craft Fair – ArtTable Beadwear. They made the most beautiful beaded Australian Native flowers using french beading techniques, though unfortunately it looks as though the company hasn’t survived.

Well, finally I finished the making, turning what should have been a hair ornament into an asymmetrical necklace and matching earrings. I can’t even begin to explain how I made it, though basically, each leaf/petal is made individually, and twisted together to form flowers… then arranged on longer pieces of wire and wrapped up with silk ribbon and floral tape. I combined it with a deep purple satin cord, embellished with a Chinese woven medallion.

I get so many compliments when I wear it, and I highly recommend going through the work and effort – its worth the satisfaction and reward. There are many books and kits available with a bit of searching.
