Who would make ribbon roses without some French Beaded Flowers thrown in? FBF is an even more obscure craft then ribbonwork. Several years ago I purchased "More French-Beaded Flowers" by Dalene Kelly. Her designs are so beautiful. Unfortunately many of the examples of FBF are really ugly so I was happy to see her designs. I even bought her first book through her site, www.beadedflowerpatterns.com, she also offers individual patterns. So I collected many hanks of beads to make beautiful flowers but today was the first time I made something. The ribbon roses needed a filler and I couldn't find a way to make Queen Anne's Lace out of ribbons. So I remembered the downloaded file and thought I would try! The flower looked easier then it was to make. The first issue was that I couldn't find white beads so I decided to try it with silver. It isn't a hard pattern exactly it is getting used to making beaded loops and making them tight enough so the beads don't move. It took a lot more strength and I even used a smaller gauge wire. So my hands are demanding some rest tonight! With some changes I think the FBF will work as a lovely filler.
