The journey began with the old-world-art of French beaded flowers over a decade ago for me. I had just come home from the Bead and Button show. Feeling inspired, I scoured the Internet for beading projects and began teaching herself the art of French beaded flowers, which originated in France in the 1500’s. Bead Flora & Jewels is born.
I use only the highest quality Japanese or Czech seed beads. The beads, on their own, are nothing. Yet, stringing them on wire and then forming them into petals, they transform into individual pieces of beaded flower art.
Once only owned by French and English Royalty, mys innovations in French beaded flower techniques have transformed this old- world-art into modernized accessories such as hair adornments and jewelry. Bead Flora & Jewels is most known for the extravagant bridal bouquets that are statement and heirloom pieces all at the same time.
Bead Flora & Jewels has been featured in bridal/beading magazines, the Huffington Post, and many popular bridal blogs.
