FREE beading pattern for Framed Crystal Drops necklace

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!

FREE beading pattern for Royal Lace Earrings

Here is a pattern for earrings that match the Royal Lace necklace from my last post.  This design is basically composed of the same 2 components as the necklace (the 3-pearl component, and the diamond-shaped crystal component), but they are arranged vertically instead of horizontally.  This pattern is made using Czech 11/0 seed beads, 4mm bicone crystals, and 4mm and 6mm pearls.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Royal Lace necklace

This pattern definitely takes some patience to make, but the end result is lovely.  To make it, you need 11/0 Czech seed beads, 4mm crystals, and 4mm and 6mm pearls.  The piece below was made using AB sapphire 4mm crystals, ivory pearls, and silver 11/0 Czech seed beads.  The other example was made with copper seed beads, metallic copper crystals, and beige pearls.  I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post.  Enjoy!

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.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Crystal Lace

This pattern requires 11/0 seed beads, 4mm pearls or druks, and 4mm bicone crystals, and is made in one continuous row.  Either larger TOHO 11/0 beads or smaller Czech 11/0 beads work equally well in this design.  I used bronze TOHO 11/0 seed beads, 4mm bronze druks, and metallic purple bicone crystals in the necklace below, and Czech 11/0 gold seed beads, white 4mm pearls, and 4mm Tanzanite AB bicone crystals in the other piece. I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post.  Enjoy!
