I am excited to announce the release of my flower book!
This book is a collection of flower patterns that have been the basis for many of my jewelry designs. Originally conceived as a reference guide to help me when beading it has evolved into a series of patterns that progress from simple blossoms to complex blooms. It has taken me seven years from the original idea to publication. I have learned so much about pattern writing, vector graphics, publishing and more. I appreciate and thank everyone who has helped my along the way.
From the Flowering Fields is currently available in the Blurb bookstore. Click the link below the photo to visit.
I hope everyone enjoys making these flowers as much as I do.

Some of my recent designs use the new Navette and Bridge beads from the BeadSmith.These beads have three holes and are made to fit together.
Other photos of these designs are on the blog post on my RoseBluBeads page.
