I know you want to know how I made this flower. Here is my My Flower brief tutorial. This is what I'm using to make the flowers and I add more beads to make the pendant hook or I attach them to earwires.

I love to make flowers with 5 petals. They means more than those that have 6 because they means "life". I hope these steps will be clear and easy for you to understand.

I used 5 flat shell beads. This design needs this kind of flat shell beads top drilled. The size of the petals will give the size of the final flower. Of course would be nice if you try to make it with another kind of bead.

Check this page to find the shells:

You will aslo need 10 -4mm- beads ( I used silver ) and 20 -3mm- seed beads (brown).

For the center of the flower you will need 1 -8mm- bead.

And you will need also nylon or soft wire, not more than 80 cm.
Ok, Good luck and thank you for your message!!


  1. Hi Franchezka
    I love your pretty flower. I've also been making lots of flowers with 5 petals recently and am just finishing some more that I will photograph tomorrow when the daylight is good.
    Thank you for sharing your technique.
    Kristin :)

  4. Hi Franchezka, I received your friend request on Facebook. I have been using that to stay in touch with my family and former classmates. I will follow your work on and here. I hope you will do the same for me. Thanks, Gaynor Mann (Alexandra Shariff Designs)
