Everyone appreciates an artful flower arrangement, but the pleasures of fresh flowers are all too fleeting. This legendary manual reveals the secrets to creating bouquets of lasting beauty with beaded flowers and foliage.
Bouquets from Beads applies the principles and techniques of skillful arrangement to both Oriental and Western styles. Its full, easy-to-follow instructions feature 44 different varieties of flowers, from asters to zinnias; 148 black-and-white photos and drawings, including step-by-step diagrams; 21 color illustrations of attractive arrangements that can be copied or adapted into original designs; and a special chapter on Christmas ornaments, with beadwork renditions of mistletoe, stars, trees, and other seasonal motifs.
A bible for beginners, this famous guide was hard to find for many years and available only in costly secondhand editions. This inexpensive new edition will delight both experienced and novice beadworkers.
