Flowers are one of those special jewelry inspirations that go around and around in a circle. Everyone loves flowers, so there are lots of flower beads and beading patterns out there. Since they’re so abundant, flowers designs are great for inspiration, and they make us love flowers all over again. It’s also easy to use flowers as inspiration because there are just so many options. From daisy chains to orchids, the possibilities are endless.
I went on a search for some of the most exciting and inspiring flower beads available right now. I saw a lot of old stand-bys like chrysanthemum cabochons and such, and discovered a few new things as well. These are my favorites:
The green and blue palette of these Java glass rounds
from Happy Mango Beads are irresistible!
Another great color in a classic Czech glass bead design
from Czech Beads Exclusive. So yummy!
There are about a million variations of Lucite calla lilies out there, all of them gorgeous,
but it was these pretty Lucite daisies from Beadaholique that stopped me in my tracks.
Strawberry blossoms are another personal favorite, and this lampwork cab
by Iveta Linde on Etsy is simply perfect!
Pastels are fabulous in floral motifs, like these Czech glass
opal buttons from Ms. Bijoux Beads on Artfire.
African sandcast beads are always a treat, and the contrast on these
baubles from Artbeads.com is lovely.
Another great focal in lampwork, this pendant from Fire Mountain Gems
features a totally adorable ladybug!
What could be more inspiring than the amazing motifs of Golem Design Studio focals?
I love the colors on this one from FusionBeads.com
Lampwork is really where it's at for flower beads, and these pretty buds
by Solar Salamanders on Etsy don't disappoint.
