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!

FREE beading pattern for Sophia Necklace

This is a variation on the bracelet pattern from my last post to create a matching necklace.  The pattern requires 6/0 TOHO seed beads (3 colors) and 11/0 TOHO seed beads (1 color).  The first two rows are nearly identical to the bracelet pattern, but the third row is different and allows the pattern to curve for a necklace.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Sophia Bracelet

The strand on the necklace of my last post was essentially a modified spiral rope stitch with an extra stabilization row to make it lie flat.  I came up with a variation on the same concept using different size seed beads and a more decorative stabilization row to make a bracelet.  This is my first bracelet pattern, but I like it so much I will probably create a matching necklace for it in my next post.  I particularly enjoyed experimenting with different color combinations in this design.  This is easy and quick to make, and requires only 6/0 TOHO seed beads (in 3 colors) and 11/0 TOHO seed beads (1 color, matching one of the 6/0 colors).  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Palace Pearl Earrings

Here is a design for earrings to coordinate with the Palace Pearls necklace pattern from my last post.  This is a nice simple design that is quick to make, requiring only 4mm and 6mm pearls, 4mm crystals, and 11/0 seed beads (plus a 6/0 or 8/0 seed bead at the top for a jump ring).  I made the gold/white/aqua version below using smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads, and the green/bronze version with larger TOHO 11/0 beads, and the pattern works equally well with either.

FREE beading pattern for Palace Pearls necklace

This design took a bit of trial and error to work through, but I am very happy with the end result.  It is a fairly simple pattern to make, and requires 4mm and 6mm pearls, 4mm bicone crystals, and 11/0 seed beads.  I made this design with both the smaller Czech 11/0 beads (the gold, aqua, and ivory version shown below) as well as larger TOHO 11/0 beads (bronze and green version), and although the design works with either, I think the smaller Czech 11/0 beads look a bit better.  The close-up photo of both necklaces provides a good example of how different Czech and TOHO 11/0 bead sizes really are.  I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post. Enjoy!
