FREE beading pattern for Alexia Bracelet

I really love how simple and light-weight this design is.  The finished piece has plenty of “bling” from the sparkle of twisted bugle beads without being bulky.  The only materials required to make this bracelet are 11/0 seed beads and Czech #3 (6.4mm) bugle beads, but the 11/0 seed beads must be large enough so that their length is equal (or greater) than the width of the bugle beads.  For all of the examples below, I used Dyna-Mite seed beads (from firemountaingems.com), and twisted Czech #3 bugle beads from Hobby Lobby.  As always, I recommend using Fireline when working with bugle beads so the thread does not break against sharp edges.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Bugle Deco Earrings

The geometric angles in this design give it an Art Deco feel from the Roaring Twenties.  These earrings are fairly quick to make, and require round beads or crystals (4mm, 6mm, and 8mm), Czech #3 (6.4mm) bugle beads, 11/0 seed beads, plus an 8/0 or 6/0 bead at the top to put a jump ring through.  This design works equally well with smaller Czech11/0 seed beads (like the orange/gold and aqua/silver examples) or larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads (like the red/bronze and silver/clear examples).  Using the larger TOHO beads result in a slightly more elongated shape.  The last few photos show the pattern works equally well as a pendant to accompany the earrings.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Diamond Rivoli pendant

I absolutely love this pendant pattern.  You need a 14mm rivoli crystal, 4mm coordinating crystals and pearls, a drop bead, and two colors of 11/0 TOHO seed beads (Japanese 11/0 seed beads might also work, but not the smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads).  Some of the examples below show variations on the drop part of this pendant, which you can experiment with yourself (or even omit if you like).  As opposed to hanging this pendant on a chain, I decided to hang it on 1/4-inch ribbon, finished with crimp ends for clasp.

Note: If you have trouble with the beginning of the pattern, visit http://www.aroundthebeadingtable.com/Tutorials/PeyoteBezel.html, which has a more detailed picture and diagram tutorial of the same exact process depicted in steps 1 – 6 of this diagram.

This design uses 20mm pillow beads along with 4mm and 6mm round beads of natural stone (magnesite in this case), accented with 11/0 Czech copper seed beads and 4mm copper satin pearls.  I love the way the natural stone looks in this piece.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Sophia Earrings

I wanted to create an earring pattern that had some of the same colors and elements to match the Sophia Bracelet and Sophia Necklace in previous posts, and came up with something that uses the same 11/0 and 6/0 TOHO seed beads in what is mostly a Peyote stitch.  Enjoy!
