Russian Leaf Earrings - Light Cranberry & Hematite

  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Metallic Hematite" (DB1)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Blue Grey" (DB301)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Galvanized Matte Light Cranberry" (DB1841F)
  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Gunmetal" (451)

The cranberry color in these earrings isn't quite as bright as it appears in my photos. Below is the color chart for this design but I haven't typed up the step-by-step instructions yet for when to pick up each bead color.

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.



  1. Linda, one of the MANY things I love about your blog is that none of the beading patterns ever feel ‘outdated’ to me. I’m always excited to see what today’s project is, but I also frequently refer back to the beginnings of the blog. Thank you for sharing so much with us!

  2. These are so pretty! I really must try them. Love the colors.

    1. Thanks, Jeanie. The color is such a pretty shade of pink. If you mixed vanilla ice cream with raspberries, you would get this color.
