FREE beading pattern for Lorraine Necklace

Special Note:

My apologies to those of you on the e-mail list who may have received multiple e-mails of my last post.  There was a server migration in December which caused a glitch in the e-mail mechanism, which I believe has now been fixed.

New pattern!

This is my latest necklace design, entitled Lorraine Necklace.  It requires 11/0 seed beads, 4mm pearls or crystals, 6mm & 8mm pearls (or round beads), and Superduo or twin beads.  If you choose to use 4mm crystals that are not bicone  (i.e. like the black/gold piece below, where the crystals are more oval), a slight adjustment to the pattern is needed.  If using oval crystals, then at steps 16 and 17 where you see 2 seed beads in a row, use only one.  Below the picture is a list of materials I used in the three pieces shown.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
