Check Out This Excerpt from French Beaded Flowers The Complete Guide:
Outlining is used in French beading to add definition to a leaf or petal, separating one unit from another within clearly defined areas of space. Outlining guides the viewer’s eyes around one petal or leaf to the next. There are two methods used to outline a Basic’s margin. The first method is to make a Basic using strung beads with a single color for the interior area of the Basic. After the interior is beaded, slide the strung beads down the wire and measure how much wire will be needed to complete the Basic’s margin.
Snip the wire at that measurement and string the outline beads onto the wire. Then, complete the Basic pattern. Twist the unit support wires securely.
The second method is to use one color of strung beads for the interior and complete the pattern for the Basic, except for the last row. End the Basic, then take the second color of strung beads and secure it to the top of the basic bottom loop of the BF by wrapping the wire one to two times around the wire. Then, make the last row of the Basic with the outline beads, beading in the same direction that the beads were going for the previous rows. Twist the unit support wires securely. This technique increases the number of unit support wires. These may need to be reduced prior to flower assembly. In the pattern section of this book, a pattern that applies the outline technique will reference it under the heading "Additional." The pattern will provide the color and the bead count for the outline on a unit.
