FREE beading pattern for Palace Pearl Earrings

Here is a design for earrings to coordinate with the Palace Pearls necklace pattern from my last post.  This is a nice simple design that is quick to make, requiring only 4mm and 6mm pearls, 4mm crystals, and 11/0 seed beads (plus a 6/0 or 8/0 seed bead at the top for a jump ring).  I made the gold/white/aqua version below using smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads, and the green/bronze version with larger TOHO 11/0 beads, and the pattern works equally well with either.

FREE beading pattern for Palace Pearls necklace

This design took a bit of trial and error to work through, but I am very happy with the end result.  It is a fairly simple pattern to make, and requires 4mm and 6mm pearls, 4mm bicone crystals, and 11/0 seed beads.  I made this design with both the smaller Czech 11/0 beads (the gold, aqua, and ivory version shown below) as well as larger TOHO 11/0 beads (bronze and green version), and although the design works with either, I think the smaller Czech 11/0 beads look a bit better.  The close-up photo of both necklaces provides a good example of how different Czech and TOHO 11/0 bead sizes really are.  I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post. Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Tila Net Earrings

This is an easy earring pattern using 5mm tila beads, 11/0 Czech seed beads, and a 4mm crystal, designed to coordinate with the Tila Netting necklace from my last post.  If you recall from my last post, the black AB tila beads used in the black/blue and silver version were only AB on the front (the back was entirely black), so the resulting necklace became reversible.  In order to make the earrings also reversible, I replaced the top 11/0 bead (that the jump ring goes through) with a small lobster claw clasp, to allow me to turn each earring around to show either the blue/black AB side, or the black side, depending on how I wear the necklace.  These earrings  are fairly quick to make.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Tila Netting

I wanted to create a geometric design using tila beads, and after some trial and error, this is the final result I came up with (which I was very happy with).  Necklaces below were made with smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads. (Larger TOHO or Japanese 11/0 seed beads might work too, but I haven’t tried it yet).  The piece shown below was made with shiny copper 5mm tila beads, 4mm bronze metallic bicones, and iris brown and copper 11/0 seed beads.  When I bought the jet black AB tila’s online, I did not know they were only AB on the front; the back was opaque shiny black with no iridescence.  So the resulting necklace became reversible by accident (i.e. the photos of the black/blue-AB tilas and the black tilas are actually the same necklace).  I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post.  Enjoy!
