The blue beaded one is my favourite.  Love that colour.

Here are links for some more flowers too:

You can try to figure out the other ones on the site too, but this lavender one was the most easy to comprehend one

You need to sign up on this site, to access the free patterns, but it is well worth it imo

Beautiful!!!  I can picture a bouquet of these in an antique picture frame (without the glass of course).

These are wonderful! Your technique is off to a really good start, especially with the round petals.  I recommend starting with Dalene Kelly's free "basic techniques" guide, and then maybe buying some individual patterns or one of her books. I found her books to be really helpful as a beginner.

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Thanks, guys!

beadedbyamy, your peony avatar is the reason I tried french beading in the first place! I'm just floored by all of your work!

onyxnox, thanks for the links! I've been poring over them for an hour now. Really need to stop!
