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 Twin Crystal Earrings

This is an easy pattern for earrings that coordinate with the “Twin Rivoli” pattern from my previous post.  Each is made with black and gold-lined 11/0 seed beads, 4mm champagne bicone crystals, black drop bead(s) and a 6/0 gold bead at the top to hold a jump ring.  This is a very easy pattern, ideal for a beginner.

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 Twin Lace

If you want to experiment with twin beads, there are several free patterns available on the internet for bracelets and earrings, but not as many for necklaces, so I created this one.  This is an intricate lacy design made with two-hole twin beads, pearls (4mm and 6mm), and two colors of 11/0 seed beads.  Photos below show it with darker colors (wine, black, and antique gold), as well as in lighter colors (off-white with iridescent clear beads) for a more bridal look.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Two-Tone Lacy Net

I love how this color combination looks, and the way it brings out the design of the necklace.  This necklace was made with gold and hematite-black 11/0 seed beads with gold 6mm pearls.  It is fairly simple to make, and is striking when made with two contrasting colors like this.  Enjoy!
