This is my fourth year with the bead journal project. My plan is to make a flower each month which will be mounted at the end of the year onto a beaded vessel. I will gradually bead the vessel throughout the year.
This flower, from the Beaded Garden by Diane Fitzgerald, is a brick stitched 5-petal flower following the directions for a pansy. I’ve used delicas for the petals. The flower measures almost two inches in diameter.
