Beaders and gardeners alike will delight in these projects that use brick, peyote, net, and herringbone stitches, as well as right-angle weave and combination stitches. You can stitch the flowers and other garden elements as embellishments for jewelry, embroidery, and clothing - or add a stem and more greenery to transform them into spectacular, everlasting bouquets. In addition to beaded flowers and leaves, you'll want to create the beetles, pretty butterflies, caterpillars, and delicate dragonflies, too! Step-by-step instructions, stunning photographs, and easy-to-follow diagrams guide you through simple to more advanced projects, and the colorful gallery of pieces from well-known bead artists is sure to give you a year-round case of spring fever.
