Default Wild About Flowers Tutorial is finished!

Yupp, it is ready two weeks early and I will be busy emailing all pre orders out tonight and tomorrow. If you have not received it by Tuesday, please shoot me off a pm with your Etsy ID , thank you!



Tutorial includes:

A little history on how I came to creating these beads. Many pages of bead recipes. There are two beads per page listing the bead shape, vine cane recipe and floral cane recipes. Enough eye candy to last you many moons!

1. Step by step, with text and clear photographs showing you how I create my vine canes.

2. Step by step with text and clear photographs showing you how I create my floral canes.

3. How I create the base beads for the florals with different presses, photographs and text instruction.

4. How I create both the raised and pressed floral beads. I will invite you to look at lampworking through different eyes. If you can count, you can create these flowers.

5. How to create the leaves.

6. How to create the lovely little rosebuds.

7. You will learn the recipe for the floral canes and how to apply the petals for the type of flowers shown in the second picture of this sale.

8. With the purchase of my tutorial you will have full rights to create as many beads using my tutorial , either for sale or your own personal use.

The tutorial is 82 pages.


There are no refunds for Ebooks

Hi guys, well all your sweet words are awesome to wake up to! All pre orders have been shipped. Please let me know if I missed anyone or if something went wrong . Email isnt always perfect, but usually it is.

I cant tell you how happy I am to hear you are all enjoying it so far.

Bring on the flowers!

Lol me too! That's what we get for waiting.

Congrats on finishing early, I know it must be a huge relief. I look forward to checking this out as soon as funds allow. Your other tutorials were fabulous, I know this one will be as well!

Thank you Jenne and just to let everyone know, this tutorial will never go on sale , you have my promise. I feel I underpriced it to begin with. Take your time as I am not going anywhere

Jacqueline, it's brilliant! I've admired your floral beads for such a long time, and this tutorial spells it out in terms anyone can understand. I love how you explained things so even novice beadmakers can follow your instructions. The photos are beautiful too, and that is such a big part of a successful tutorial.

I think you've produced a tutorial that will be a "must have" for anyone who wants to learn to make floral beads.

Well done!

Wouldn't it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for 10 min and come out wrinkle free, back to original shape, 3 sizes smaller and smelling april fresh!

Jacqueline, I stayed in the shop late just so I could read it through. OMG it's beautiful and the eye candy is TDF.
Some very, very helpful tips, too. I actually feel like I can do these.. Haven't put it into practice yet, though

Hi Essie, hehe of course you can do it. It is just a matter of sitting down and practising those strokes. I began writing the tutorial last Fall actually. I kept putting it off as I continued to learn. I felt it would be wrong to put out a tutorial without really understanding the process thoroughly. I kept having little light bulb moments. I am really anxious to see others efforts now. I miss making beads too.

One of the best tutorials I have purchased. It was easy to understand and the photos were stunning. Already my raised florals have improved.(Had to make a few test beads after work) Just needed some guidance. Thank you

Thumbs up

I LOVE this tutorial - I have really enjoyed Jacqueline's previous tut's and this is one is absolutely fab - had so many 'ah-ha!' moments reading it as I figured out 'thats how she does it!'. Now I have read it through twice, and have my canes a'ready, I am heading out to the studio tonight to put it through its paces - thanks Jacqueline and well done.

Can't wait to see, Robyn. I'm having to live vicariously for the moment
But I'm really wanting to try the bonus one as much as the main one

I can't wait to see either. Bring it on sistas! I may fire up the torch tomorrow. I got bad news today though. I need foot surgery, blah. But I dont have to stand to torch so the beads still win

Sorry to hear about your foot Jac. I snuck out & made another quick one before I set the kiln on it's annealing schedule, I don't have any of the frits you used (a frit ho like me, who would have thought ) so I substituted my own choice of frits to make the canes.

I did have a quiet giggle at that poor bead on page 29, you're so mean for taking a photo of it like that, it will be traumatised (in more ways than one ) for the rest of it's life .
