Dainty French Beaded Flower Earrings Tutorial

By on Wednesday, April 04, 2018 2 Comments

French beaded flowers are usually associated with much larger designs for home decor or bouquets.  But Fen Li of Bead Flora Studio has a dainty French beaded flower earrings tutorial which clearly shows you can make small designs as well. This technique is easy.


You do need to string on a lot of beads so using a bead stringing tool is very helpful. Fen uses one!

I do like her continuous beading technique which reduces the number of wire ends down to just 2.  This does not matter if you are making a large floral arrangement. However, you do need to minimize the wire bulk  for earrings.

Using wire means the petals can be manipulated so the flower has a 3D appearance. This is something that is much harder to achieve with beadweaving.

  2. So pretty! Love how this technique has been used for small earrings instead of large flowers. And what a good excuse to get out the bead spinner! :)
