FREE beading pattern for necklace Seed Bead Lace

This is a elegant lacy pattern you can make only using seed beads.  For this piece I used white pearl 11/0 seed beads with silver accents, which gives more of a bridal or summery look, but it would work in any color.  It is one of those dress-down or dress-up necklaces — very versatile.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Diamond Pendant

The pendant part of this pattern can be used to make earrings too.  The pendant looks nice on a chain or on a beaded strand (as shown).  The pattern requires 6mm pearls and bicone crystals, with both 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads for the pendant.  The strand shown is made with 4mm pearls and bicone crystals and 8mm pearls with 11/0 seed beads.  I made another version with grey pearls and red crystals for a more “evening” less “bridal” look.  In both cases, I included an extra link between the pendant and strand than what is shown in the pattern in order to lengthen the pendant drop, but this is optional.  The pendant was made with regular Fireline beading thread, while the strand was made from Beadalon 0.15-inch beading wire, with crimp beads on the ends to attach the clasps and secure the beads in place.  One thing I like about this pattern is that it is simple, elegant, and does not take very long to make.  Enjoy!
