An Introduction to French Beaded Flowers
Beads have been around for thousands of years, dating way back to the first recorded civilisations. Throughout history, they have been created using mud, brick, glass, minerals and more to adorn a vast array of items. Throughout history, eye-catching beads have been symbolic statements of wealth and power – beaded clothing and jewellery has been worn by Pharaohs, Kings, Queens and Aristocracies for millennia.
In the present day, beads are easily accessible to people of all backgrounds and cultures and have now been used in just about all of the most imaginative ways you could think of! Just some of these fabulously creative creations, emerged as early as the 1500’s – Beaded Flowers.
