Russian Leaf Earrings Chart 35 - Copper & Turquoise Stripes

  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Metallic Chocolate" (461)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Galvanized Cinnamon Brown" (DB460)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Copper Plated" (DB340) *
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Opaque Sea Foam Glazed Luster" (DB374)

Below is the color chart that I promised the other day.  This color chart is included in the PDF file.

Click HERE to download my free PDF file that tells step-by-step when to add each color Delica bead while making these earrings. This is NOT a tutorial for making "Russian Leaf" earrings". You will need to use Jill Wiseman's tutorial (see the link below) but make them with seven rows instead of nine as Jill instructs.

* I've discovered that over time these copper plated beads tarnish and turn a dark brown color. From now on when I use this color, I will brush clear nail polish on the front of the earring as well as on the back. This will solve the problem because the color hasn't tarnished on the back of the earrings because I had coated with nail polish to stiffen them.

Read THIS post where I explain how I finish and reinforce my Russian Leaf earrings. I also have information about how I stiffen my earrings in THIS post.

Watch Jill Wiseman's YouTube video tutorial HERE to learn how to make Russian Leaf earrings similar to these and download her free PDF HERE.

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