PATTERN DETAILS

Make a bouquet of these adorable calla lily-like components. You need to be comfortable with peyote stitch, and should be able to work with tight tension, which is required to prevent droop! I like using a metallic colour for the accent (around the open edges), and something sweet for the main colour. I enjoy the way gilt-lined beads contrast with metallics, but there's no right or wrong here. Start by making the bail/loop, change colour to continue making the bloom, add stamens if desired, and add a contrasting plain or zig-zag edging. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY peyote stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Each calla is less than an inch without the bail loop

Recommended with this pattern

  • Japanese size 11 seed beads in 3 colours, 2 for flower, 1 for stem
  • accent beads for stamens (optional)
  • beading needle

I can neither imagine nor remember a time when I wasn't making things. I have tried almost every fiber art, and currently knit and spin my own yarn. I sew clothes and furnishings occasionally. I've dabbled in polyclay, lampwork and silver-smithing, but immerse myself in seed beading. I teach at a local bead store, as well at national shows from time to time. Patterns in my shop are by and large based on classes I have taught, so they've been tested on real people!
