Lace leaf chain, part one

I’ll be working on a larger project in the near future, so decided to enjoy a smaller project while I’m waiting for those beads to arrive. Here’s the first 2″ or so of a lace leaf chain, from Diane Fitzgerald’s Zulu Inspired Beadwork. I have a pendant I will be adding to this. I’m not following directions exactly — I’m making a straight square stitch base, instead of square stitch over a piece of cording, and it has two tiers of leaves in the instructions. I didn’t have cording on hand, and one tier fits the scale of the pendant.
