French Beaded Rainbow wreath by Lauren Harpster

Hello! I am Lauren Harpster – bead designer and author.  Welcome to my website dedicated to teaching the old art of French Beaded Flowers. 

Follow along with me and learn how to make realistic flowers out of tiny glass seed beads and wire. If you are new to the art, I would recommend starting with the Beginner Course in the “Learn” section of my website. 

New Patterns!

I’ve recently released three new patterns in my shop: Sweetheart Rose, Echeveria + Sedum Stahlii, and Hawaiian Ginger + Areca Palm. 

Latest YouTube Videos

The video lessons for my French Beaded Sedum Stahlii and Echeveria designs are starting on YouTube! 

Parts 1 & 2 are up and viewable on YouTube. 

I’ve started a large personal project, and thought it would be fun to do a video documentation on my journey through figuring out how to make this baby. This will be a long-term project as other things I’m working on are higher priority. But I’m looking forward to making and sharing this piece!
