The art of French Couture Hand Bead Embroidery is stunning and is for everyone. 

This project combines shadow quilting and dimensional hand beading together creating a flower with 3 dimensional petals that glitter beautifully. Your finished piece is a graceful light and dark pink waterlily. If you can sew on a button you can sew on a bead!

Some of the techniques covered in this class will be: 

  • Creating leaves using bugle beads, sequins using whip stitching and back stitching and finishing each petal individually.
  • Learn the technique of shadow quilting to make the base of the flower
  • Creating a bud for the centre of the flower.
  • Attaching all the petals to the flower in a 3-dimensional way.

This project can be framed or appliqued to an accessory.


Skill Level: Beginners & Enthusiasts.

Kit:  $100
