FREE beading pattern for Tila Net Earrings

This is an easy earring pattern using 5mm tila beads, 11/0 Czech seed beads, and a 4mm crystal, designed to coordinate with the Tila Netting necklace from my last post.  If you recall from my last post, the black AB tila beads used in the black/blue and silver version were only AB on the front (the back was entirely black), so the resulting necklace became reversible.  In order to make the earrings also reversible, I replaced the top 11/0 bead (that the jump ring goes through) with a small lobster claw clasp, to allow me to turn each earring around to show either the blue/black AB side, or the black side, depending on how I wear the necklace.  These earrings  are fairly quick to make.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Tila Netting

I wanted to create a geometric design using tila beads, and after some trial and error, this is the final result I came up with (which I was very happy with).  Necklaces below were made with smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads. (Larger TOHO or Japanese 11/0 seed beads might work too, but I haven’t tried it yet).  The piece shown below was made with shiny copper 5mm tila beads, 4mm bronze metallic bicones, and iris brown and copper 11/0 seed beads.  When I bought the jet black AB tila’s online, I did not know they were only AB on the front; the back was opaque shiny black with no iridescence.  So the resulting necklace became reversible by accident (i.e. the photos of the black/blue-AB tilas and the black tilas are actually the same necklace).  I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Pearl Petals necklace

This is one of my original designs made entirely out of 11/0 seed beads and different size pearls (4mm, 6mm, and 8mm).  The piece below was made with teal blue pearls with silver metallic and teal 11/0 seed beads, but I have included other photos showing of another version of it, which I made shorter (almost choker length) with ivory pearls and iris brown and gold metallic 11/0 seed beads.  I love how both color combinations turned out.  This pattern is relatively simple to make, and one of my favorites.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Cathedral Net necklace

This is a lovely multi-colored necklace of my own design made entirely out of 11/0 seed beads.  I entitled it Cathedral Net because it employs a variation of the netting technique, but the resulting rows form shapes that resemble windows and buttresses of a cathedral.  The gold and brown piece below demonstrates a light-to-dark graduation of color, while the blue example shows the opposite (dark-to-light), which look a bit like icicles. The two examples show that this pattern works equally well with different types of 11/0 beads (smaller round Czech 11/0 beads in the gold and brown necklace, or larger more square 11/0 Matsuno Dyna-Mites in the blue one).

FREE beading pattern for Victorian Netted Bezel on Lacy Chain

I created another design using the stunning 18x25mm resin opalescent multicolored cabochons available at Fire Mountain Gems (http://firemountaingems.com), this time with examples showing what the light resin cabochons look like, as well as the dark.  The cabochon is caged in a netted bezel (similar to my last post), but this time surrounded by 4mm bicone crystals and attached to a lacy V-shaped chain made entirely from seed beads, giving it more Victorian look: regal and classic.  I made two light versions: one with 4mm lavender crystals, silver 15/0 and silver, white, and lavender 11/0 seed beads, and another with 4mm aqua crystals, silver 15/0 and silver, white, and aqua 11/0 seed beads.  (The aqua version has an additional aqua drop crystal at the bottom of the pendant).  The dark version is made with green 4mm crystals, brown 15/0 and brown, green, and gold 11/0 seed beads.
