>Beaded Leaf


I’ve been thinking about what kind of leaves I want to add to my little owl’s branch, and I think these ruffled leaves will do just fine. I looked in The Beaded Garden by Diane Fitzgerald, and loved her leaf design.

Here’s the first one that I made. It is made from size 15 Japanese seed beads in 3 different greens, and measures 1″ long. The technique used is the peyote stitch. Now that I have a vision, I plan to first stitch the owl onto the canvas. Then, I’m going to make some more of these leaves in different sizes. As I make each one, I’m going to stitch it directly to the canvas around the branch.
