Hello! I am Lauren Harpster – bead designer and author.  Welcome to my new 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. 

New Patterns!

I’ve recently released three new patterns in my shop: Bauble #1 – a French Beaded Christmas Ornament, Miniature Poinsettia Topiary, and Miniature Daffodil. 

This is one of the exciting projects I’ve been working on the last few months, and I’m so happy to finally have this finished. It was almost published in my first book “Christmas Collection,” which I published three years ago, so this has been a long time coming. 

The finished piece is 16 inches tall (not including the stand). Play the spinny video to get a 360 look at the finished topiary! 

Latest YouTube Videos

In November 2020, I ran an online class in a Facebook group for French Beaded Zinnia and Hanging Amaranth. I’ve decided to upload the videos from the class to my YouTube channel. I will be uploading a new video every few days until the class is complete. 

If you would like a PDF copy of the patterns, they can be purchased in my shop.
