May’s Filigree – Beaded Leaves Pattern


This pattern shows you how to weave pretty filigree-inspired leaves. The components are created using size 15 seed beads and are just so versatile! In this design I combine them with bezelled rivolis for a dainty and very wearable jewellery set. Ideal for Intermediate beaders.



These pretty filigree-inspired leaves are created using size 15 seed beads and are just so versatile! In this tutorial I show you how to create bezelled rivolis with Right Angle Weave to combine the two components for a dainty and very wearable jewellery set.

I used these leaves in my jewellery for my own wedding; they featured in white in my hair piece and in pretty leafy greens on the bridesmaids’ combs. They have just so many uses and can easily be scaled up by using larger beads.

This project is ideal for intermediate beaders – it assumes that you are comfortable with Right Angle Weave but does provide some guidance on creating rows. Previously published in Making Jewellery magazine.

  • 10.5mm Swarovski Elements Rivolis (1122)
  • Size 15 Japanese seed beads
