FREE beading pattern for necklace Pearl Triangles

This is another elegant variation on the classic pearl necklace, which is fairly simple to make using two needles.  The necklace shown below was made with olive 6mm pearls, gold 3mm pearls, green 4mm round faceted crystals, and gold 11/0 seed beads.  You can substitute 8/0 beads for the 3mm pearls, if desired.  In my next post, I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings, so stay tuned!

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 Crystal Pearl Earrings

This is a simple pattern for earrings that coordinate nicely with the previous post for the Rivoli Pendant necklace pattern, and are made from a central 8mm bicone crystal surrounded by light gold 4mm pearls, 4mm and 6mm round crystals, and 11/0 light gold seed beads.  These earrings are easy to make, and can be made fairly quickly.  Make them to wear at a Christmas party, or give them as a gift!

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).

FREE beading pattern for necklace Bugle Fringes

Something about this design reminds me of styles from the1920’s.  This is a lovely pattern that works with about any size bugle bead.  To make this, you need 11/0 sead beads, 3mm – 4mm fringe beads, and bugle beads (any length).  I made a cobolt blue and copper version with longer (12mm) bugle beads (shown below), as well as a green and gold one with shorter (6mm) bugle beads.  Enjoy!
