Russian Leaf Earrings #4

  • 8/0 seed beads Miyuki "Duracoat Galvanized Light Pewter" (4221)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Duracoat Galvanized Light Pewter" (DB1851)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Matte Opaque Sea Foam Glazed Luster" (DB374)
  • 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads "Galvanized Matte Berry" (DB1167)

Yesterday I had a request for bead pick-up instructions to make "Russian Leaf Earrings" with this design. I previously blogged about the sample earring above HERE but I never did make a complete pair of these earrings. Let me know if you see any "Russian Leaf" color charts on my blog that you would like the bead pick-up instructions for and I will type them up and post them.

Click HERE to download my free PDF file which 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. The color chart below is included in the PDF file.
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.


  1. Hi Linda, I was on YouTube viewing Detrina Kofroth's (The Alluring Bead Boutique) video on beading Russian Leaves and she showed a blank pattern sheet that she said was available on your blog. I've searched and cannot find it; can you point me to where it is, or let me know if you've removed it? My thanks! Jeanne Evans aka Glorious Beads
