FREE beading pattern for Celtic Medallion necklace and earrings

This is absolutely one of my favorite patterns, and I’ve made many of these in different colors.  This necklace is ideal for folks who prefer more dainty, less “statement” type necklaces, and the center component works great for matching earrings.  You can even make just the center component as a pendant, and put it on a chain or ribbon.  This was a more difficult pattern to write a diagram for, but hopefully the diagram I came up with is still easy enough to read and follow (although you may need to zoom in for some parts).  This pattern only requires 15/0 and 11/0 seed beads, and 6mm bicone crystals or pearls.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Basic Spiral Rope

This is probably one of the most versatile patterns, as it makes a rope that is not stiff (like Herringbone or Russian Spiral Ropes are), so it hangs and moves nicely. I like to tie the beaded rope into a Celtic Heart Knot and add a pendant or tassle for a focal point, as shown below. (FusionKnots.com has nice instructions on how to tie a Celtic Heart Knot).  The pattern includes a variation on the spiral rope for using 2 different sized seed beads (demonstrated in the yellow necklace), and also shows how you can form a “V” in a spiral rope to hang a pendant.  The necklace below was made with 11/0 seed beads.  Spiral ropes can be used to make necklaces or bracelets.  Enjoy!

FREE Beading Pattern for necklace Icicle Fringe

This necklace was inspired by the movie “Frozen”, and I love how the ice blue crystals catch the light and combine with the bugle beads to resemble icicles. Even so, I think this design could work well with other color pallets.  This necklace requires many 4mm and 6mm round crystals to make, but it is worth it.  The necklace also has 11/0 silver seed beads with 12mm bugle beads.  Enjoy!
