I've always loved the French bead and wire flowers technique. This method involves stringing a lot of seed beads on wire and then bending them at strategic spots to create petals and leaves. It is different from Victorian bead and wire style. The latter has the beaded wires running straight across the frames.
These two tutorials on how to make bead and wire leaf tutorials use a variation of both French and Victorian styles. Both have a central wire stem which makes the designs much better.
Use them for beaded floral arrangements, hair jewelry, bouquets. Perhaps even statement necklaces?
