Rainbow brooch

Floral brooch made from PRECIOSA beads and seed beads

The rainbow brooch is made using the French beading technique, i.e. plaiting around the axis.

This technique is best suited to the creation of flower petals and leaves. Two textures of two-cut beads of one shade are used on each petal and a leaf. The two-cut beads are the dominant seed beads, while the triangles are secondary; they decorate the flower and give it its final appearance.
