FREE beading pattern for Scalloped Lace Necklace

I haven’t created a design that uses only seed beads in a while, so here is a new motif I came up with. You can use one or two colors — either way, the design yields nice results.  This pattern uses netting techniques, but is finished with round elements to create lovely curved scalloped edges.  I used 11/0 Czech seed beads in iris blue and silver for the two-tone example below, and transparent rainbow cream 11/0 Dyna-Mites seed beads (which look light yellow) for the single-color piece.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Superduo Buds necklace

Since my interests have gravitated toward Superduo beads lately, I experimented with another way to use them in a necklace design.  This pattern requires 2 colors of 11/0 seed beads and 2 – 3 colors of Superduo beads.  I tried the design with smaller 11/0 Czech beads and larger TOHO 11/0 beads, and both yielded nice results.  The smaller 11/0 beads resulted in more “V” shapes in the 2nd row of buds (seen in the gold & copper, and pink & white pieces), while the larger TOHO 11/0 beads resulted in more “U” shapes in the 2nd row, shown in the black and copper example.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
