Growing up in a creative home, Amber has always been a maker of beautiful things. She launched Paper and Bead in 2017 as way to merge her love of making things by hand with her inability to keep plants alive. She wanted her home filled with plants and flowers that would always look beautiful, and brighten the day, without the risk of withering. Amber uses German and Italian crepe paper with a variety of color mediums to make each flower by hand. Her flower portfolio includes peonies, ranunculus, hydrangeas, orchids, sweat peas and irises. We love all of her flowers and have chosen the creamy white ranunculus for this collection. A Las Vegas resident, Amber is a software project manager by day and makes her paper flowers by night.
