Strew flowers on your sweet little girls by making her the Flower Girls Bracelet! In this beading tutorial, you will learn how to create flowers and then link them together with gold seed beads that we’d like to call, “Golden Bridge.” Through simple weaving techniques, it is like you’re building a golden bridge and strewing colorful flowers on your path. Learning the technique of creating a flower, you can use the technique for making a single flower that you can use as earrings as well.

Cut 1 arm length of nylon thread. String 2 needles at both ends. Thread in 4 dark brown seedbeads.
Cross the left thread into the last seed bead on the right. This is how it should look like.
On your left thread (LT) string 5GS, 1DS, 1B
On your right thread (RT) string 1B, 1DS
Cross left thread (LT) into last DS on right thread (RT).
Add 4DS on right thread then cross left thread into last DS on right thread.
On RT add 1B, 1DS.
Insert the thread back into the bicone bead, pull to tighten the flower.
Pass the thread into the nearest DS bead.
Add 1B, 1DS.
Insert thread back to bicone bead then pass the thread into the nearest DS bead.
Repeat Step 9 & 10 and this is how it should look like.
Bring the thread at the bottom, pass thru 1DS.
Then insert the thread into 1DS, 1B, 1DS at the top.
