This full-color, step-by-step tutorial shows you every detail in creating this life-like, three-dimensional beaded flower plus a curly stem.
Learn to create sculpted, life-like dimensional flower petals using nothing more than flat peyote stitch, then create a tiny bezel and embellish it to add stamens and pistils. The curly stem is made with the same technique as the petals, and teaches you how to zip a curved piece of peyote stitch seamlessly.
