Poshmama Article Beaded Beauties



Glass beaded flowers & fruit have been popular as accents since the late 1890's. And now they are back even looking more fabulous than ever. Adding beaded fruits or flowers to your home brings vintage to modern living with flair and style. This is a technique that is simply mind blowing. The patience and creativity involved is astronomical!

Sharon from Moores 6 Beaded Flowers by Sharon has a fun selection of pieces to spice up your home! Basket of beaded strawberries is so unique and fun to have in your home - it will add the pizazz you are looking for in those spots you are always saying "What does this need?!" The basket comes with 18 berries averaging 1.5 inches long and .75 inches wide in a wire basket measuring 6 x 4 x 5.5 inches. Each berry is made with red and mixed green seed beads using brass and green wire.
