Czech glass Ginkgo Leaf Beads are wonderful to work with thanks to their unique shape and two-hole design. Becky came up with this simple stringing project on multiple strands of stretch cord. The multi-strand design allows you to create a striped effect with the beads and the Ginkgo beads nest up beautifully within the pattern.
