FREE beading pattern for Trinity Necklace

This design is all about groups of three, which inspired its title.  This pattern requires 6mm and 4mm round beads or pearls, 6mm bicone crystals, and 1 or 2 colors of 11/0 seed beads.  Smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads work just as well as larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads do with this design.  Using the larger seed beads results in slightly larger triangle components.  This difference can be seen in both close-up images, which show the smaller seed bead components above the larger seed bead components for comparison.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

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 Rivoli Pendant

This is a stunning pendant stitched from 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads, 6mm round crystals, 4mm pearls, surrounding a 14mm rivoli crystal in the center.  I added an additional drop on the bottom of this pendant (not shown in the pattern), but the pendant works beautifully without that.  This piece was made from light gold pearls, light gold seed beads, and garnet red crystals, making it an elegant necklace for the Christmas season.  The pendant can be connected via jump ring to a chain, or strung on a beaded wire with matching pearls and crystals, as shown below (and in the pattern).

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 Regal Pearls

This pattern has an old world feel, and is made with 4mm and 6mm white pearls, silver 11/0 seed beads, 5 2-hole focal beads, and a pearl drop with bead cap. I made a version with blue accents, and one with light green (which has a bit more “bling”). This pattern can substitute 4 pearls for the 2-hole beads as well, and includes a variation for the center piece.
