Product Description

“Oak Leaf” Necklace & Earrings Set Beading Pattern #26463

While preferring to show up stylishly late for fall, dressed in more muted hues than the showy Maples, Oak trees are, none the less, truly beautiful and inspiring! And, when reproduced with glorious, shiny little seed beads, they’re also quite fashionable! And, because Oak trees are a bit more modest and pragmatic than other deciduous trees, often preferring to stay “dressed” during winter and shedding their leaves only until spring – you can “justify” wearing these multi-lobed lovelies all the way through winter (then whip some up in green and you’re good for spring and summer too) – fun! This is a great project for beaders of all skill levels, including beginners. With this simple beading pattern (which includes a detailed materials page, color information, over 100 high-resolution full-color photos and easy to follow step-by-step directions), we’ll teach you how to stitch up these distinctive little leaves and make them into stylish earrings measuring 1 ½” tall by 1” wide (not including the earwires) and a pendant (measuring a full 2” tall by 1 ¼” wide) that you can hang from your favorite chain or an earthy leather cord necklace, which we also show you how to make. As an aside, if you’re crazy for fall and also love those adorable little acorns, make sure you check out our “Mighty Little Acorn” Necklace and Earrings design. You could create a fun coordinating ensemble in which you wear both oak leaves and acorns for a truly fabulous fall look! Have a great fall and bead happy!
