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 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!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Crystal Loops

The dark gold seed beads and bicones in this necklace give it a nice antique look. It takes many 4mm round crystals to make this piece, but it is lovely as a short necklace. I made another with dark blue 4mm pearls instead of crystals, which also worked well.  I can see this pattern working with almost any color (especially if the seed beads and bicones are a contrasting but complementary color to the crystals/pearls).  I hope you enjoy this design!

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.
