FREE beading pattern for necklace Lacy Net

This is an elegant pattern for a beaded lace collar necklace, made from 11/0 seed beads and 4mm pearls.  There are five rows of stitching required in the pattern, so it takes a while to make, but the end result is an ornate yet graceful design with a bit of old-world style.  Substituting 4mm crystals for the pearls would look nice as well.  (I think this could make a nice vintage-looking bridal piece if made from white or off white beads and pearls).  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Crystal Pearl Earrings

This is a simple pattern for earrings that coordinate nicely with the previous post for the Rivoli Pendant necklace pattern, and are made from a central 8mm bicone crystal surrounded by light gold 4mm pearls, 4mm and 6mm round crystals, and 11/0 light gold seed beads.  These earrings are easy to make, and can be made fairly quickly.  Make them to wear at a Christmas party, or give them as a gift!

FREE beading pattern for Rivoli Pendant

This is a stunning pendant stitched from 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads, 6mm round crystals, 4mm pearls, surrounding a 14mm rivoli crystal in the center.  I added an additional drop on the bottom of this pendant (not shown in the pattern), but the pendant works beautifully without that.  This piece was made from light gold pearls, light gold seed beads, and garnet red crystals, making it an elegant necklace for the Christmas season.  The pendant can be connected via jump ring to a chain, or strung on a beaded wire with matching pearls and crystals, as shown below (and in the pattern).

FREE beading pattern for necklace Pearl Netting

This is a lovely pattern, that was modified from a pattern that was originally posted at BeadsMagic.com.  After making the necklace, I found it needed another row to keep the pearls in place better (to prevent turning or twisting as they hang from the netting), so I created the pattern below to include that extra stabilizing row.  This necklace was made with dark and light copper 11/0 seed beads with 8mm dark copper pearls.

FREE beading pattern for Basic Spiral Rope

This is probably one of the most versatile patterns, as it makes a rope that is not stiff (like Herringbone or Russian Spiral Ropes are), so it hangs and moves nicely. I like to tie the beaded rope into a Celtic Heart Knot and add a pendant or tassle for a focal point, as shown below. (FusionKnots.com has nice instructions on how to tie a Celtic Heart Knot).  The pattern includes a variation on the spiral rope for using 2 different sized seed beads (demonstrated in the yellow necklace), and also shows how you can form a “V” in a spiral rope to hang a pendant.  The necklace below was made with 11/0 seed beads.  Spiral ropes can be used to make necklaces or bracelets.  Enjoy!
