Russian Leaf Earrings - Red, White & Blue

  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Nickel Plated" (DB21)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Limestone Luster" (DB211)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Opaque Dyed Navy" (DB2143)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Opaque Dyed Jujube" (DB2119)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Nickel Plated" (190)

I've been trying out a few new colorways with this pattern and today's is a somewhat patriotic one. I used the color chart below to make this design. You can download the PDF for the chart HERE.

I made two more pairs of "Russian Leaf" earrings that I will blog about tomorrow and on Sunday. I also tried the colorway below but haven't decided if I like it well enough to make the other earring. I haven't put nail polish on the back of that one yet in case I end up taking it apart. Below is the color chart that I used to make this sample earring but it shows different colors.

  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Metallic Light Bronze" (DB22L)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Opaque Aloe Luster" (DB263)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Opaque Semi-Matte Rusty Brown" (DB794)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Opaque Dyed Juniper Berry" (DB2135)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Light Bronze" (457L)

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.

Download my free earring color chart for the earring design at the top from THIS post. It's not a tutorial for making Russian Leaf earrings so you will still need to follow Jill's tutorial if you don't already know how to make them. My color chart describes when to pick up each bead color to make the design on these earrings. Bear in mind that I used different color beads than on the color chart but it shouldn't be too difficult to switch them out.

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