FREE beading pattern for necklace Diamond Motif

I absolutely love this pattern! The diamond component in this pattern works well for earrings or bracelet as well. This pattern is made with 4mm pearls and round faceted crystals woven with 11/0 seed beads. There is an optional link between components in the pattern, shown in the example with dark blue pearls below.  This pattern works with either contrasting colors or similar colors.  This pattern is easy and fun to experiment with different color combinations.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Seed Bead Lace

This is a elegant lacy pattern you can make only using seed beads.  For this piece I used white pearl 11/0 seed beads with silver accents, which gives more of a bridal or summery look, but it would work in any color.  It is one of those dress-down or dress-up necklaces — very versatile.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Diamond Pendant

The pendant part of this pattern can be used to make earrings too.  The pendant looks nice on a chain or on a beaded strand (as shown).  The pattern requires 6mm pearls and bicone crystals, with both 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads for the pendant.  The strand shown is made with 4mm pearls and bicone crystals and 8mm pearls with 11/0 seed beads.  I made another version with grey pearls and red crystals for a more “evening” less “bridal” look.  In both cases, I included an extra link between the pendant and strand than what is shown in the pattern in order to lengthen the pendant drop, but this is optional.  The pendant was made with regular Fireline beading thread, while the strand was made from Beadalon 0.15-inch beading wire, with crimp beads on the ends to attach the clasps and secure the beads in place.  One thing I like about this pattern is that it is simple, elegant, and does not take very long to make.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Crystal Loops

The dark gold seed beads and bicones in this necklace give it a nice antique look. It takes many 4mm round crystals to make this piece, but it is lovely as a short necklace. I made another with dark blue 4mm pearls instead of crystals, which also worked well.  I can see this pattern working with almost any color (especially if the seed beads and bicones are a contrasting but complementary color to the crystals/pearls).  I hope you enjoy this design!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Veronica

The contrasting colors in this necklace accentuate the design.  This piece is made with 15/0 seed beads, mostly 6mm pearls, with accents and drops made from 4mm pearls and 4mm bicone crystals.  11/0 seed beads can be used for the bead stops on the drops if the bead hole is too big for a 15/0 seed bead. (That was done for this piece, even though the pattern indicates all 15/0 seed beads).  This one is fairly simple to make, which is another reason I like it.
