FREE beading pattern for Twin Diamonds necklace and earrings

The pattern for this necklace was so simple, I had room left over to include a pattern for stunning earrings to match!  The necklace pattern works well for a bracelet too.  This necklace was made from 4mm off-white pearls, iridescent clear twin beads, and 11/0 gold seed beads.  Each earring uses those same beads, plus off-white pearl 11/0 seed beads, a 4mm crystal, a pearl drop bead with gold bead cap, and a 6/0 gold seed bead to hold a jump ring at the top.

FREE beading pattern for Pearl Rhombus earrings

As promised, here is a pattern for earrings that coordinate nicely with the necklace pattern from my last post (Pearl Triangles).  These earrings are made using 6mm olive green pearls, 3mm gold pearls, 4mm faceted round green crystals, and gold 11/0 seed beads.  I also use 2 gold 6/0 seed beads at the top to put the gold jump rings that can connect with either clips or ear hooks.  The 3mm gold pearls can be substituted with 8/0 seed beads if needed.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Pearl Triangles

This is another elegant variation on the classic pearl necklace, which is fairly simple to make using two needles.  The necklace shown below was made with olive 6mm pearls, gold 3mm pearls, green 4mm round faceted crystals, and gold 11/0 seed beads.  You can substitute 8/0 beads for the 3mm pearls, if desired.  In my next post, I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings, so stay tuned!

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.
