Budding Bead Creations

Flowers have always held a special place in human expression; red roses are given to show passion and love, the lily a symbol of femininity. And used in weddings, events, funerals and areas of reception. 


Beaded flowers embody this same spirit while allowing freedom of creativity and an essence that will be treasured for years to come. 


Budding Bead Creations specialises in crafting home decor items as well as accessories using a technique that is centuries old - originating in France. The term 'French beaded' that you will see in most item descriptions refers specifically to the method used: Small seed beads, usually 0.11mm in size, are strung onto a single wire. The wire is then wrapped and manipulated to form the shape of a petal, leaf etc. This technique compared to some others is certainly laborious and time consuming but is 100% worth it as the end result is incredible. And while this means they can also be a bit more costly to buy, if cared for, they can be enjoyed for generations.


Flowers can be made up in any size, colour, flower type and arrangement so please do contact me if you are looking for something special or custom. 

If anything is unclear or you have more questions, please don't hesitate to send me a message.


Orders over R1000 will include free shipping. Some items can be combined in one shipping cost so please send me a message letting me know what you are looking to purchase and I will advise.


Products in the shop are in stock and once ordered are packed and couriered out in 1-2 working days. Should you require a quicker delivery let me know and I can try to assist. Custom orders lead times will vary depending on the size of the project and the lead time on the supplies. But to give you an idea, a single flower such as a rose would take up to 30 hours to put together.


All items in my store are returnable within 7 days from receipt of the order. You the buyer will be responsible for the return cost and ensuring the package is wrapped up properly and is returned in a perfectly resalable condition. A 15% re-stocking and administration cost will also be charged to the you. Custom orders are non-returnable.


If an item arrives damaged the cost of the return will not be charged to you and you will be refunded 100% of the item cost (excluding the initial delivery charge.) You will be required to advise of any damage within 24 hours of the package being received by the courier. To claim, a detailed description of the issue and photos of the damage must be sent through to Budding Bead creations withing the 24-hour period. No custom items will be refunded in the event of damage upon delivery. This will be returned to Budding Bead Creations at their own cost, repaired and returned to you in within 5-7 working days (please bear this in mind when ordering a custom order for a special occasion.)


As the items are made using wire, some movement will have happened whilst in transit and the item may lose some of its shape. All components of the products can easily be tweaked by yourself to get the desired shape back but take note that excessive twisting and bending of the wire will make it brittle and cause it to break.
