The Beaded Garden {Bead, Book & Bounce}

Continuing our feature - Bead, Book & Bounce - I'm delighted to announce the next book on our virtual beading shelf, The Beaded Garden by Diane Fitzgerald. First published in 2005, The Beaded Garden contains a whopping forty-two patterns for beautiful flowers, flower parts and garden creatures, alongside a gallery full of ideas for combining elements into beaded bouquets and stunning jewellery pieces. 

We'll be encouraging you to share your own review of the book and, of course, anything you make inspired by Diane's amazing projects during our reveal feature in September. (You can read a little bit more about how this works in our Introducing Bead, Book & Bounce article, but we'll always be here to guide you along.) 

Projects In Other Places - 

The instructions for the Brick Stitch Butterfly Necklace are available from Diane Fitzgerald Presents but, unfortunately, the majority of the projects within the book are not available elsewhere. 

And, If You're Interested - 

You can watch an Interview With Diane Fitzgerald or check out the How To Make A Floral Fusion Necklace video from Beads Direct, which features designs from The Beaded Garden.

Don't forget that you are still able to work on projects from our first book choice - Bead Romantique by Lisa Kan and that we'll be featuring designs inspired by the book in our first Bead, Book & Bounce Reveal during August.
