French beading is a simple yet lovely art, beautifully described here and illustrated in color with more than 70 close-up, how-to photos that show how to grow a garden of 30 flowers with delicate seed beads. Forty additional illustrations present the exact bead placement for each particular flower part. Just string the beads on wires and bend them into realistic, three-dimensional shapes a helpful introductory section covers all the basics. Craft a budding dogwood branch, frame a mirror with wisteria blooms, or make a holiday wreath of holly and gold-tipped pinecones. A gallery of vintage pieces illustrates the rich history of the craft.
