The art of French beaded flowers

French Beaded Flowers were being made as early as the 16th century. Originally used for altar flowers in churches during winter months, the beaded flowers were also used in crowns for royal brides to wear on their wedding day or to carry down the aisle in bouquets. Although the term "French" refers to a group of techniques, bead flower making may have begun in Germany in the 1300's, when metal wire was first developed.

I'm still partial to the real thing, but these are truly works of art.
