A seed bead flower pattern is a drawing that lays out the design of a seed bead flower. The pattern designates the color and number of beads contained in the design and indicates how the crafter should arrange the beads to create the desired shapes.
Seed bead flowers are decorative flowers assembled out of seed beads. Seed beads are tiny beads made of glass that range from the size of a grain of sand to a few millimeters in diameter. To create a flower from seed beads, the crafter strings beads onto wires, using one piece of wire for each petal and a single piece of wire for the stamen. The wires are then curved into the appropriate shapes and attached to one another. Seed bead flowers are often used in accessories, such as earrings, hair ornaments or corsages.
