Russian Leaf Earrings - Asparagus & Copper

  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Galvanized Light Pewter" (DB1851)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Copper Plated" (DB340)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Aspargus Aqua Glazed" (DB391)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Galvanized Muscat" (DB1165)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Dyed Opaque Cactus" (DB2124)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Light Pewter" (4221)

I made this pair of earrings to go with two of my tops that both have these same colors in them. It was a challenge but I actually used five different Delica bead colors in this tiny design. The color chart below only has four colors. I replaced the green beads on the chart that run along the bottom edge with the fifth color, which is "Cactus". The only place that I used the "Muscat" beads was to make the center cross.

To learn how to make "Russian Leaf Earrings", watch Jill Wiseman's YouTube video tutorial HERE and download her free PDF HERE. You will need to follow Jill's tutorial but make them with seven rows instead of nine as Jill instructs.

You can buy Delica beads at Red Panda, Aura Crystals, Supply Emporium and Jill Wiseman Designs.
