Topics: Seed Beads, Leaf/Flower

Q.
How do I make a leaf or a flower out of beads?

A.
Weaving beads with needle and thread would be one way.

Using a decreasing peyote stitch on the ends of a woven strip of even-count peyote would allow for any length of leaf desired. Seed beads could also be sewn onto silk which would give a more flexible finished product.

Beads or crystal could also be woven on wire, as in the French beaded flower technique, and would create a more solid or rigid leaf.
