A gorgeous crystal beaded flower, a beaded buckle and a scattering of simple leaves make this is the perfect summer accessory. Glamorise your summer shawls, secure your sarong with style, or add it as a centre piece to your favourite lariat. The pattern for Tropical flower is easy to follow with colourful illustrations. Suitable for beaders who like a bigger project, the design is worked in right angle weave, peyote and albion stitches. Each element can be worked into many combinations, giving you lots of pretty options for jewellery too.
The pattern is presented over eight A4 pages.
