Tithonia Flower

January 28, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Tithonia Flower”

We’ve often been asked about how to stitch beaded flowers, and this one designed by Ella Des is a wonderful example, with lots of dimension and color options. What we also found fascinating is that the entire piece is stitched continuously instead of making individual pieces and connecting them! You can attach your completed flower on chain, as we did in our sample, to wear as a pendant, or stitch a beaded rope that you’ll see in the handout on class day. We also had a couple of unique ideas from our customers — you can attach it to a bracelet band and wear it like a corsage, or attach it to a hair barrette!

This piece is designed by Ella Des and is available for purchase on her website: www.ellad2.com.  Ella has generously allowed us to distribute copies of this pattern to participants who attend this class.

    • 4mm beads (10 pieces)
    • 15/0 seed beads (2 grams)

We used chain to hang our flower from, as a pendant, using jump rings to attach the chain to the netting on the back of the bezel.

You’ll also need fireline and a beading needle. An awl & thread burner not required, but are very helpful!

We kindly ask that you use beads purchased at our store when in our beading room.
