3 Lovely Flower Jewelry Tutorials Using Petal Beads


Don't get me wrong. I do love dahlias - they are gorgeous showy flowers. But when you have a northern garden like mine, they do not survive the harsh winters unless the bulbs are dug up at the end of the season. Digging up bulbs is so not me!

But I sure don't mind the beaded variety!  This beaded dahlia pendant by Allie Buchman of Potomac Beads makes excellent use of petal beads.



You can use just one row of petal beads and create a pair of earrings, too. This earrings tutorial is by DesignerBeadwork.



This lovely poppy flower bracelet tutorial from Preciosa was shared by Czech Beads Exclusive (they have a worldwide flat shipping fee)

  1. I have so many petal beads in both sizes. I see pretty colors and I can't resist, and they just accumulate. This gives me some ideas on how to use them, thanks!

  3. I love the Dahlia Pendant and have been wanting to make it for a while, but I really want to make it with the color of beads used in the tutorial! That metallic mix is fabulous! Unfortunately, I can’t find it anywhere and have been looking for a while. If anyone knows where to find it, please let me know!

    1. I just looked at 8 or 9 different shops, including a few that are off the beaten path a bit, and a few that are overseas, and I couldn't find it anywhere. Potomac calls it "purple iris gold" but that's no guarantee that other vendors call it the same. Maybe contact Potomac and ask them if they plan to get it back in stock?

    2. That's a good suggestion, Sneaky Burrito!

  4. I love Dahlias too Pearl. But mine never over winter either in this even shorter growing season here in Alberta. I've dug them up and carefully kept them in a cool place and in the spring - nada.

    These are delightful little creations. Love the petal beads!

    1. I don't often see dahlias around so I think the extra work of digging them up and replanting puts people off.
