FREE beading pattern for necklace Wavy Pearls

This is a beautiful variation on the classic pearl necklace.  The piece is made with 4mm pearls and 11/0 seed beads.  The pattern is really simpler than it may appear at first glance.  Besides the steps that start and end the necklace, the main pattern really consists of only 2 steps for each upper curve (repeated 3 times), and 2 steps for each lower curve (repeated twice).  In other words, the upper curve is made with steps G – L, but really, G-H, I-J, and K-L are all the same.  Similarly, the lower curve is made with steps M – P, but M-N is the same as O-P.  Q-R is really the start of the next upper curve, so is the same as G-H.  The reason the pattern is shown with all the repeated steps in sequence is to show context in each illustration for where you are in making each curve.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Crystal Squares

This is a stunning necklace with “bling” made from 4mm AB Swarovski crystals (sapphire color), 6mm and 8mm gold pearls, with gold, silver, and cobalt blue 11/0 seed beads.  The pattern shows how a slight modification to the center component of the necklace makes wonderful earrings that coordinate perfectly with the necklace.  This is an elegant set for evening or prom, or even just to add some fun “bling” to an ensemble.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Twin Lace

If you want to experiment with twin beads, there are several free patterns available on the internet for bracelets and earrings, but not as many for necklaces, so I created this one.  This is an intricate lacy design made with two-hole twin beads, pearls (4mm and 6mm), and two colors of 11/0 seed beads.  Photos below show it with darker colors (wine, black, and antique gold), as well as in lighter colors (off-white with iridescent clear beads) for a more bridal look.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Netted Pearls

This is a popular necklace pattern originally posted at beadsmagic.com, which has been slightly modified.  Instead of having the loops overlap and hang freely over eachother, I found the necklace kept a more evenly spaced crisscross pattern if the loops were interlocked with one another, so the pattern below illustrates how to stitch it that way.  I made both an off-white and bright-white version of this necklace with clear AB 6mm bicone crystals, pearls (4mm, 6mm and 8mm), and 11/0 seed beads. This would make a stunning bridal or evening necklace; classic and beautiful!

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!
