January 2009 Beaded Four Leave Clover lucky Charm Project.

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded tutorials and other project. This month's project is a beaded four leave clover lucky charm, made with Japanese glass seed beads using right angle weave Beading technique.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.
