I saw this flower on In Tatters, done by Sarah Wood and I followed the link.
It took me to Corina Meyfeldt's blog which I hadn't seen before. She has lots of other pretty things on there, worth a visit. And here is the link to the pattern: Beaded Flower Pattern.
I really like the way she used beads in this, it does give the flower a lovely shape. Four-bead picots are not new but I'd not seen a join done into the beaded picot like this before. Great idea.
The green one below is done with the stitch count as per the pattern. In the pink one above, I changed it a bit (smaller petals). And I think I prefer a smaller stitch difference between the first and second round on the petals (as in the pink). Both a pretty though. I do notice that her white flower with same stitch count as my green looks more like my pink flower... ??
The smaller blue one is done in Altin Basak 50 and there are also even fewer stitches in that one.
A great little pattern and an interesting use of beads, thanks to Corina for sharing her ideas.
