The beaded Russian leaf motif is not that hard to accomplish but looks so pretty. I previously wrote about the beaded earrings tutorials. Now let us have a look at a beaded Russian leaf pendant tutorial. This one is by Stephanie of Bronzepony Beaded Jewelry.  The instructor includes a peyote-square stitched bail which is worked separately and then attached to the Russian leaf.

You can make the Russian leaf using different stitches (St Petersburg, square) but the one shown here is accomplished with peyote.

I really like this motif because it is open and has a contemporary flair about it especially when suspended from a simple cord.
