Beaded Beach Wedding Bouquet by Lady-Blue Beaded Beach Wedding Bouquet by Lady-Blue
This is a custom beaded flower wedding bouquet that I just finished for a bride's beach wedding. The wedding colors were chocolate brown and sky blue, and the bride asked for lots of "fun texture". Because I wanted to keep the color scheme very basic, I added complexity by doing lots of beautiful shading. Then I added texture with bronzite rounds, real shells, and beaded "coral" pieces.

This bouquet contains 11/0 japanese seed beads, swarovski crystals, copper wire, bronzite rounds, spiral shells, and ribbon to wrap the stems.

I've already delivered this bouquet. The bride was THRILLED with it and couldn't stop smiling. :)

They don't wilt, and they last a LOT longer! Just skip the "throwing the bouquet" tradition. :P

The thumbnail had me confused as to why this got a DD, but now I see I was completely mistaken! What a beautiful piece of intricate work <3

Don't feel bad! A lot of people don't realize the flowers are completely made of beads until they're pretty close up. They get mistaken for fabric flowers all the time! I take that as a compliment. :)

I get that a lot! The techniques I use have been around since the 1500s, but most people have never seen them before!
