This bead weaving stitch is used for pieces as simple as a pair of earrings or can be pieced into larger jewelry and art pieces. In this one-day workshop, participants will learn the basic Russian leaf stitch as Jenny uses it in her own work. Participants will complete anywhere from 2-5 leaves within this time period.
