Cut Flowers

Below are examples of beaded cut flowers and arrangements that Carla has made. They make a wonderful and undying addition to brighten any room in your home or office all year around.

The act of cutting flowers and using them for symbolic or religious purposes dates back 5,000 years to ancient Egypt. The Chinese also cut and arranged flowers based on religious and cultural meaning. They were displayed in water so the flowers would last longer without wilting.

The art of beaded flowers began around the 15th century, in the courts of the European aristocracy. Peasants would gather and save discarded beads and wire from dressmakers. They would then use the beads and wire to make flowers for beaded floral arrangements. These arrangements were then sold as altar sprays for churches, bridal bouquets, and burial wreaths for the wealthy. Bouquets of this era still exist in castles and homes today.
