This design is a geometric V-shaped necklace using Czech #3 (6.4mm) bugle beads and 11/0 seed beads. It is pictured below with the Bugle Deco Earrings pattern from my previous post as the pendant, but really could be used with any pendant. As always, when working with bugle beads, I recommend using Fireline to keep the sharp edges of the bugle beads from severing the thread. When making the pendant for this necklace, I substituted the 6/0-8/0 bead at the top with a regular 11/0 seed bead, since no jump ring has to go through it to attach to the necklace. I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
