King Protea, beaded using pale pink, white and green original glass beads. King Protea are striking when displayed as a single bloom in a vase or when grouped together in an arrangement. The craftsmanship and skill of the beader is apparent in this striking floral design. The King Protea originates from the Western Cape, South Africa and is South Africas national flower. Beaded by Manuel and his team of beaders in Johannesburg, South Africa.
