Russian Leaves

October 2, 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

Russian Leaves

Just in time for fall! Learn how to stitch Russian leaves using diagonal peyote. They can be a bit tricky to master at first, but once you’ve got the hang of it they can actually be quick to work up. What you do with them next is up to you! You can make up something as simple as a pair of earrings as shown above, or stitch an assortment of them to a spiral necklace and make a much more detailed piece as shown below.

A tutorial will be distributed on the day of class.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Diagonal peyote

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 2
This piece is suitable for beaders who are comfortable with reading bead patterns and know many of the common stitches and terminology
