FREE beading pattern for Bugle Triangle Earrings

Using design components from my last post, I created a pattern for bugle triangle earrings that coordinate with the necklace in that post. Only Czech #3 bugle beads (6.4mm) with 10/0 seed beads will work for this pattern.  You also need a small number of 15/0 beads (3 for each earring) and 4mm pearls or crystals (2 for each earring), plus a 6/0 (or 8/0) bead and jump ring to complete each earring. It is highly recommended that you use Fireline for this pattern, otherwise the sharp edges of the bugle beads are likely to sever your thread.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Bugle Triangles

This stringed sequence of triangles makes for a lovely geometric necklace design. There are no substitutions on this pattern: only Czech #3 bugle beads (6.4mm) with 10/0 seed beads will work.  (I tried 11/0, but the resulting triangles were not flat).  You also need a small number of 15/0 beads (3 for each triangle) to make all the connections, and to weave these triangles together with one continuous thread.  It is highly recommended that you use Fireline for this pattern, otherwise the sharp edges of the bugle beads are likely to sever your thread. I included a variation (orange) that uses 4mm pearls between triangles, and although that gives a nice accent, I like the original design (purple) a bit better because of the “S” curve of 10/0 edge beads that start from the previous triangle and continue around the top of the next triangle.  Stay tuned: the next post will include a pattern for matching earrings!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Diagonal Net

I love the geometric look of this necklace, which is surprisingly simple to make using only netting techniques.  The necklace shown below was made with 12mm silver bugle beads, silver-lined rainbow grey 11/0 seed beads, and three colors of 4mm crystals: AB clear, light blue, and “montana” blue (smoky blue).  You could easily substitute 4mm pearls or Czech round druk beads for the crystals as a variation.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Celtic Medallion necklace and earrings

This is absolutely one of my favorite patterns, and I’ve made many of these in different colors.  This necklace is ideal for folks who prefer more dainty, less “statement” type necklaces, and the center component works great for matching earrings.  You can even make just the center component as a pendant, and put it on a chain or ribbon.  This was a more difficult pattern to write a diagram for, but hopefully the diagram I came up with is still easy enough to read and follow (although you may need to zoom in for some parts).  This pattern only requires 15/0 and 11/0 seed beads, and 6mm bicone crystals or pearls.  Enjoy!
