Judy Haupin New Leaf Beads

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!
