Beaded Flower Memorial Wreath Project

As members of the International French Beaded Flower Group (an online group with international participation) watched the 9/11 attacks unfold, they began asking what they could do to express their shared sorrow for those killed and demonstrate support for those left behind.

Three volunteers, chosen for their proximity to the three crash sites offered to collect individually-made flowers and assemble glass-beaded floral memorial wreaths. The outpouring of interest from group members and other participants was tremendous. Stem after stem of hand-beaded flowers arrived from across the United States, as well as from Canada, England, Australia, Italy, France and Switzerland. View >>
