FREE beading pattern for Bugle Diamond Earrings

Here is a pattern for earrings to match necklaces from my last two posts (Bugle Squares and Bugle Diamonds).  They require the same beads as the Bugle Diamonds necklace (Czech #3 bugle beads, 4mm crystals, and one or two colors of seed beads) plus two 6/0 seed beads and jump rings to connect the components to ear hooks or clips.  It is highly recommended that you use Fireline for this pattern, otherwise the sharp edges of the bugle beads could sever your thread.The green and gold earrings were made using Czech #3 rainbow dark green bugle beads, dark green 4mm round crystals, with light green rainbow and gold lined seed beads.  The grey earrings were made using Czech #3 (6.4mm) rainbow grey bugle beads, 4mm fire polished lilac luster round crystals, and light blue rainbow and light purple rainbow silver lined seed beads.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Bugle Diamonds

I experimented more with the bugle square-within-square component from my last post (Bugle Squares), and came up with another design I like very much.  This pattern results in a more rigid curve in the necklace than the design in my last post, so works best as a shorter necklace (13 to 15 components).  It is highly recommended that you use Fireline for this pattern, otherwise the sharp edges of the bugle beads could sever your thread.  I vertically attached 3 more components to the front of the green and gold necklace, to give it a more V-line in the front, which I thought was a nice embellishment to the pattern.  The green and gold piece was made using Czech #3 (6.4mm) rainbow dark green bugle beads, dark green 4mm round crystals, with light green rainbow and gold lined seed beads.  The grey piece was made using Czech #3 rainbow grey bugle beads, 4mm fire polished lilac luster round crystals, and light blue rainbow and light purple rainbow silver lined seed beads.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Twin Floret Lace

This is a lacy pattern I designed using Czech 11/0 seed beads, 4mm pearls, and twin beads.  Either twin beads or Superduo beads will work with this pattern.  (I used twin beads for the white, gold, and pink piece, and Superduo beads for the blue/silver and purple/grey pieces).  I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Enchanted Tree Necklace

Why do I call this the Enchanted Tree Necklace?  Because the reflective resin in the cabochon reminds me of tree bark on a trunk, the necklace strands remind me of leaves, and the fringe reminds me of branches — all elements of a tree.  On top of that, the dark color combination is electric, almost other-worldly and enchanting.  (The lighter color combination is softer, less dramatic, and more reminiscent of peach blossoms).  This design is composed of a netted bezel around an 18x25mm resin cabochon, embelleshed with 4mm crystals and coraled fringe, all hanging from a double St. Petersburg strand on either side.  This pattern demonstrates how to stitch and attach the double St. Petersburg strands, and illustrates the coraling technique used to create the branched fringe (including how to stitch it onto the netted bezel).  This is my favorite design yet using resin 18x25mm opalescent cabochons.  Enjoy!
