This design is very similar to the Framed Pearl Drops necklace from my previous post, but modified to use bicone crystals instead of pearls. I found that simply substituting bicone crystals instead of pearls didn’t work, as the crystal’s middle edge would make the superduo bead directly below it slant one way or another instead of being straight and vertical. So I modified the pattern to fit the crystals better, and also created a point on the crystal drops, to accentuate their non-round shape. Required materials are 4mm and 6mm crystals, 11/0 and 15/0 TOHO seed beads, and Superduo beads. The piece below was made with gold matte superduo beads, bronze TOHO 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads, and peach rose Swarovski crystals (4mm and 6mm). I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
