Crafters, artists, beaders, and jewelry makers--young and old--will discover the virtually indestructible and surprisingly realistic character of beaded flowers! Author Dalene Kelly expertly guides readers through this beautifully illustrated guide to the timeless art of French-beading, a craft that dates its origins back to the 16th century.
