February 13 - Sharon's Little Beaded Flowers

The small flower shown here was done in size 12 perle cotton and mounted on a comb.
Each flower takes 1 large 7mm pearl bead and 10 small 3mm pearl beads.
String the small beads on the ball thread. The large bead is inserted onto the very long picot of the center ring and the tip of the picot which is then joined to the opposite side of the same ring. Keep joining picots of round 1 small to maintain upright shape of the flowers.
