book, Bead Flora: French Beaded Branches in Bloom

Hello, my friends! In this post, I want to share with you some of the photos of projects that are in my new book “Bead Flora: French Beaded Branches in Bloom.”

The concept of this book is, of course, flowering branches.  In many of the projects, I also included the fruits from those blossoms in a different season like cherry blossoms to cherries, crabapple blossoms to crabapples, citrus blossoms to citrus.

There were two beaded flowers I was reluctant to design (flowering dogwood and star magnolia). The beaded citrus blossoms were a last-minute add on and all three of these flowers ended up on the cover. I’m glad I designed them.

Great news! Thanks to all of you who showed up for me on the first day of release, my book was the #1 New Release and Best Seller in the Beadwork category on Amazon. Thank you so much, my wonderful bead friends!
