Description

This pattern makes an adorable miniature potted Poinsettia plant made out of seed beads and wire using the “French Beading” method. The PDF is 6 pages long and contains 23 high quality images along with written instructions. Each finished Poinsettia is only 2 inches (5 cm) wide! The full potted piece measures approximately 4 inches (10.2 cm) wide.

You will need to know these French Beading techniques:
Wire-Back Fringe
Basic Frame
Lacing
Continuous Basic Frame
– Spoke Frame (optional, for beaded pot)

The first four are taught for free in the Learn French Beading section of my website. By purchasing this listing you will also receive a second PDF for the Spoke Frame technique, which is needed for the beaded pot.

The PDF is written in English using both Imperial and Metric measurements.
