FREE beading pattern for Honeycomb Net necklace

This is my first design using Honeycomb (2-hole hexagon) beads!  The pattern works equally well with Silky (2-hole diamond-shaped beads, shown in the red and black pieces) instead of Honeycomb beads (shown in the green and purple pieces).  The pattern employs a simple netting technique with some accents, and requires 6mm 2-hole Honeycomb or Silky beads, 11/0 seed beads (1 – 4 colors), and 4mm round crystals (optional).  The red and light gold piece below shows how the design looks when 11/0 seed beads are used in place of the 4mm round crystals around the edge.  The purple/silver and green/gold examples use 4 colors of seed beads: one accent color matching the Honeycomb beads, plus 3 different colors, dark-to-light, to create a gradient in the netting.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
