eBook - Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets - giveaway



This  post is about a journey of French beading and a givaway.

I was asked by Vivienne Wells to review the eBook  "Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets" by Katie Dean.


I am honored and glad to give a review because I love this aesthetic and challenging eBook.

This book's aim, as written in the introduction of the book, is to give an understanding of how to use French beading techniques, make flowers and construct a bouquet.
"Bead Flowers and Wedding Bouquets" has everything a beginner as well as an advanced beader needs.
It has step by step explanations about French Beading, detailed and easy to follow written instructions and videos.
I watched the videos that show Katie Dean demonstrating and explaining the techniques. I was amazed how easy it was to follow her instructions. It was almost as having her, as my private talented teacher, in my own 
room!!


 

The eBook has a lot of information not only about French Beading techniques but also about bouquet's styles. It even has explanation about the meaning of the flowers that are commonly used in wedding bouquets (this was a real surprise!!)

Most important - it advances gradually.
The beginner (as myself) can learn the techniques of french beading and advance gradually, step by step, from making the individual flower to the whole bouquet.
The experienced beader can also find lots of information that will teach and inspire him.

In summary: A wonderful book and I recommend it wormly.

This is Katie's website.

  6. Totally surprised me to see this review pop up on my timeline. I'm in the process of teaching myself how to create a bead tree based on photos I've found on Google, would love to learn the proper techniques of the wire twisting etc. My current creation can only be defined as 'rustic' but am loving the concept & enjoying the experimentation. However, I'm lacking knowledge so this book could only be a boon to enhance my current skills :-)

    A great book, I have seen an extract and SOOOO want one for myself - my plan it to use the guidelines in this book make my Daughters wedding bouquet. It looks like Katie has really found an empty niche in the world of French Flower beadcrafting.
