Judy Haupin has a free tutorial featured on the Beading Daily website called New Leaf Beads that she used to design a very showy necklace. Here are a few of the beads I made using this tutorial, and I will post my necklace and other pieces when I get them all together.
The necklace can be worn two ways. One showing the colorful cane side and the other showing the gold, copper black side of the leaves. I can see this project using many different colors and canes. This is just a start.
I also intend to make some earrings using the leaves, and have made smaller leaves to use in a charm bracelet. This is a fun project, but labor intensive. Let me know what you think!
