The PDF spans 19 pages and contains over 45 high quality pictures along with detailed written instructions to guide you in making your very own beaded Peony.
You will need to have some familiarity with the following French Beading Techniques to finish your Peony.
- Basic Frame
- Continuous Loops
- Continuous Wraparound Loops
- Unit Support Wires
- Flossing the Stem (optional)
All of these techniques are taught for free on my website in the Learn French Beading section.
The resulting Peonies are heavy and will need to be potted securely to avoid damage from tipping over.
The tutorial is written in English using US terms for measurement.
