Below are examples of beaded flower 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 earliest known flower arrangements date back to ancient Egypt, where decorating with multiple flowers was done as early as 2,500 BCE. The Chinese were making flower arrangements as far back as 207 BCE to 220 CE. Flower arranging arrived in Europe around 1000 CE. This was particularly true in churches and monasteries where flowers and plants were used for food as well as for decoration. Illustrations of arranged flowers have been found on Egyptian carved stone reliefs and painted wall decorations in tombs and temples.

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.
