FREE beading pattern for necklace Pearl Netting

This is a lovely pattern, that was modified from a pattern that was originally posted at BeadsMagic.com.  After making the necklace, I found it needed another row to keep the pearls in place better (to prevent turning or twisting as they hang from the netting), so I created the pattern below to include that extra stabilizing row.  This necklace was made with dark and light copper 11/0 seed beads with 8mm dark copper pearls.

FREE beading pattern for Basic Spiral Rope

This is probably one of the most versatile patterns, as it makes a rope that is not stiff (like Herringbone or Russian Spiral Ropes are), so it hangs and moves nicely. I like to tie the beaded rope into a Celtic Heart Knot and add a pendant or tassle for a focal point, as shown below. (FusionKnots.com has nice instructions on how to tie a Celtic Heart Knot).  The pattern includes a variation on the spiral rope for using 2 different sized seed beads (demonstrated in the yellow necklace), and also shows how you can form a “V” in a spiral rope to hang a pendant.  The necklace below was made with 11/0 seed beads.  Spiral ropes can be used to make necklaces or bracelets.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Bugle Fringes

Something about this design reminds me of styles from the1920’s.  This is a lovely pattern that works with about any size bugle bead.  To make this, you need 11/0 sead beads, 3mm – 4mm fringe beads, and bugle beads (any length).  I made a cobolt blue and copper version with longer (12mm) bugle beads (shown below), as well as a green and gold one with shorter (6mm) bugle beads.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Two-Tone Lacy Net

I love how this color combination looks, and the way it brings out the design of the necklace.  This necklace was made with gold and hematite-black 11/0 seed beads with gold 6mm pearls.  It is fairly simple to make, and is striking when made with two contrasting colors like this.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace V-Pearls

This is a lovely classic looking pearl necklace, elegant yet simple.  The “V” gives it a flattering shape.  Shown here in a dusty purple color with silver accents, this is a pattern that can work with any color.  This pattern calls for 6mm and 8mm pearls and 11/0 seed beads.  (I’ve wanted to try this pattern using different color for the 6mm pearls to frame the 8mm pearls in the middle, but haven’t done it yet).  This one is fairly easy to make.
