FREE beading pattern for Christmas Cascade Earrings

Here is an earring design to coordinate with the Christmas Cascade Necklace from my last post.  The earrings were made using metallic gold 11/0 TOHO seed beads and Czech fire-polished dipped decor round crystals (6mm emerald green, and 4mm garnet red).  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Christmas Cascade Necklace

This is a new design, beaded up in festive Christmas colors with elements resembling Christmas tree garlands.  In this piece, I used metallic gold 11/0 TOHO seed beads and Czech fire-polished dipped decor round crystals (6mm emerald green, and 4mm in 3 colors: emerald green, garnet red, and opaque-to-translucent metallic gold).  The diagram illustrates how to make the necklace in 3 rows, including clasp.  This design works best as a short necklace.  (The example below is about 15 inches long, which required 18 6mm crystals, 18 4mm green crystals, 19 4mm gold crystals, and 76 4mm red crystals). I plan to post another pattern for matching earrings soon.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Pentagon Rivoli Pendant

This is a lovely pendant design, which features a crystal rivoli inside a 5-pointed floral frame.  The pattern requires a 14mm crystal rivoli, 6mm pearls or bicone crystals, Superduo beads, 11/0 seed beads, and jewelry glue for the last step.  I experimented with larger (TOHO) and smaller (Czech) 11/0 seed beads, and both seemed to work equally well.  I included a step at the end to glue the the rivoli back to its beaded cage in the back, because I found that with some of the pieces I made, the rivoli could pop out if you twisted the component hard enough. I used E6000 clear glue for that step (same as pictured in the Materials photo in my DIY Sweater Clip post).  I was able to string the pendant on a chain by inserting a jump ring through the middle of one of the sides of the finished piece.   I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Superduo Leaf Drops Necklace

This design is made entirely from Superduos and 11/0 seed beads. You can either use two colors to alternate the leaf drops, or a single color — both yield nice results. There is a variation included in the pattern that uses seed beads in place of the horizontal Superduo in each leaf drop (where the leaf drop cinches together). If using two colors, there are two different ways to alternate them, which is also shown in the pattern. The materials and variations I used in these pieces are listed below. I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Sunburst Rivoli Earrings

This is an earring pattern to coordinate with the Sunburst Rivoli Pendant in my last post.  Each component requires a 12mm rivoli, 2-hole triangle beads, 4mm bicone crystals, with 15/0 and 11/0 Miyuki seed beads.  I tried this pattern with Czech 11/0 seed beads in the aqua/silver piece below, which did work, but the Miyuki’s were a bit more uniform and worked a bit better.  The 6/0 or 8/0 seed bead at the top allows you to loop a jump ring through so the component can be attached to an ear clip or hook, but this is optional if you prefer to glue a post to the back instead.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
