FREE beading pattern for Celtic Medallion necklace and earrings

This is absolutely one of my favorite patterns, and I’ve made many of these in different colors.  This necklace is ideal for folks who prefer more dainty, less “statement” type necklaces, and the center component works great for matching earrings.  You can even make just the center component as a pendant, and put it on a chain or ribbon.  This was a more difficult pattern to write a diagram for, but hopefully the diagram I came up with is still easy enough to read and follow (although you may need to zoom in for some parts).  This pattern only requires 15/0 and 11/0 seed beads, and 6mm bicone crystals or pearls.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Crystal Net Earrings

As promised, here is a pattern for earrings that coordinate with the Crystal Net necklace pattern in my last post.  These earrings employ a lovely color combination arranged in a flowery wheel pattern, each made from copper and purple 11/0 seed beads with 4mm purple AB bicone crystals, a 6mm purple AB bicone crystal, and a 6/0 copper seed bead at the top for attaching a jump ring.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Crystal Net

This is a fairly easy pattern modified from a similar pattern I originally found on another blog (http://cartonsetperles.canalblog.com/archives/2011/04/19/20928261.html).  It uses two rows of stitching to make the basic netting pattern, plus a 3rd row to even out and stabilize the edge.  I love the color combination in this piece, made using copper and purple 11/0 seed beads with 4mm and 6mm purple AB crystals. Stay tuned for next post, where I’ll share a pattern for matching earrings!

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 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!
