These orchids are definitely a statement piece and were made in honor of my daughter. Due to the flower’s symmetry, in China they are considered “Lan Hua” or the epitome of human perfection. 

To pattern these beaded beauties, I actually used one of my many orchid plants, dissecting one of the flowers to ensure it was anatomically correct and true to the original it is patterned after. For those who are proficient in peyote stitch, these earrings are a great exploration of how to shape flower petals using different peyote techniques.  Each flower is made life-size, true to scale, and can be worn as earrings (as instructed here) or adapted to make a beautiful pendant.


TECHNIQUES14 total stitches including variations.  Class will focus mainly on modified diagonal peyote and contemporary geometric beadwork.
