Learn French Beading Series
The first volume of my Learn French Beading series was published February 2020.
While it is made specifically for beginners who’ve never touched beads or wire, it is also an excellent resource for experienced French Beading artists.
This title is an instruction manual that goes along with my Learn French Beading: Beginner Course video series on my website. Instructions for accessing the course videos are included inside the book. It contains instructions for beginner-level techniques and four practice flower patterns (Lavender, Dame’s Rocket, Wild Clematis, and Black-Eyed Susan).

I do offer signed copies of the paperback and a PDF version in my shop.
