For making a beaded maple we need:
- seed beads #11; I used seed beads of four colors: green, orange, yellow and light-brown, but you may take any colors in green-yellow and red-yellow shades;
- wire 0.2 mm in diameter for basic weaving;
- a small segment (about 15 cm) of thick aluminum wire of 2 mm in diameter for a trunk of the tree;
- brown thread for winding the branches and trunk.
