Holly Parr

- Beaded Flower Artist -

Holly first fell in love with the art of French Beaded Flowers five years ago. From then on her hobby has turned into her passion. Through stringing thousands of 2mm glass seed beads onto fine craft wire, with a combination of twists and wraps, Holly designs and creates exquisite forever flowers to treasure.

French Beading is a 19th century art form that has gone through waves of popularity. Believed to have originated in both Italy and France the craft was predominantly favoured by women in order to earn a little money of their own and to decorate their homes.
With beads of just about every colour available it is possible to create stunning flowers, even when they are out of season.

Holly researches each natural bloom she replicates before designing the flower she has selected. With flowers having such a powerful impact on us, creating memories, improving our mental health and sending messages it is really important to Holly that her designs are as accurate as possible and that they capture the splendour of the blooms she replicates.

Holly's love of French Beaded flowers is hopefully going to bloom into a blossoming business in the beautiful setting of the Hyland’s Estate Artist’s Studios community in the heart of Chelmsford, Essex.

Holly runs individual and group workshops; creates interior accents, decorations and beaded flower installations; wedding accessories and bouquets; bespoke pieces by commission.
