Overview

Something as simple as just seed beads and wire can be transformed into flowers. Learn the old-world art of French beaded flowers with revitalized techniques and patterns from a master designer.

Foreword by author Ragnar Levi

"Welcome to Fen Li’s dazzling world of everlasting flowers! What you will discover here is a rich variety of stunning shapes and colors, as well as a versatile craft with an exciting past.

The French beaded flora is breathtaking, in more ways than one. Developing your skills in flower beading, you will in fact be carrying forward a tradition rooted in the Middle Ages, starting in Venetian glassworks, winding through European monasteries and courts, and eventually crossing the Atlantic.

With Fen’s inviting book before your eyes, and her classically inspired yet subtly innovative patterns, you will be learning the craft from a successful bead artist who continues to revitalize the artform. Enjoy!

-Ragnar Levi, collector of beaded flowers and author of Flowers Forever: Bead Craft from France and Venice.
