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

Several months ago I started a personal project documentation series on YouTube. I finally got some samples made for the pinecones and pine needles and filmed an update on that project.

The video lessons for my French Beaded Sedum Stahlii and Echeveria designs are all up on YouTube! The button below will take you to the playlist for that class.
