RUSSIAN LEAVES MADE EASY * Bead by bead instructions for Russian style leaves!

After many tries and lots of correspondence with some nice Russian beaders I finally learned to make the leaves. It's really not hard to do once you do a couple of rows. This is a variation of Peyote stitch. It's fun to make some leaves and arrange them to form different things. Two large leaves and two smaller ones will make a butterfly. Group several leaves around a large center bead for a flower. A short leaf can be rolled and a stamen added to make a Calla Lily.
