Learn French Beading: Beginner Course!
New Facebook Group
My Learn French Beading: Beginner Course video series started on February 29th! Subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you won’t miss any of the videos.
You can order the book I’ve made to go with the course on Amazon (in Print or Kindle format), or in PDF format in my shop. I’m currently sold out of the kits for the flowers, but I will be making more once I have time to do so.
I’ve started a new Facebook group called “Learn French Beading” with my friend and fellow designer Fen Li from Bead Flora Studio. This group is intended to be a community where we can learn together and share our recent projects. Fen and I will be presenting projects for the group to work on. Currently the group is kicking off with my Beginner Course, but you are welcome to join and share any projects, tips, or ask any questions related to French Beading.
