Alla Kovelenko shared her curved beaded flower brooch tutorial over on Biserok.  This is not a difficult design to do. However, by pulling tight and adjusting your thread tension just so, the petals (and leaves) can be curved. The result adds a further dimension and interest compared to a flat bloom.

She used brick stitch but you can always adapt to your favorite stitch. You can also use this basic flower design for making necklaces not just brooches.

It is interesting how she used just a couple of beaded straps to secure the pin to the back.  I wonder if the pin will move. So maybe consider beading a more substantial band.

The tutorial is in Russian so it needs to be translated. Computer users : Use the Chrome browser, right click anywhere on the page and select "translate to English". Mobile device users : Download the Chrome app, add the URL. The app asks if you wish to translate.  It's never perfect but it helps a lot.
