FREE beading pattern for Bugle Deco Earrings

The geometric angles in this design give it an Art Deco feel from the Roaring Twenties.  These earrings are fairly quick to make, and require round beads or crystals (4mm, 6mm, and 8mm), Czech #3 (6.4mm) bugle beads, 11/0 seed beads, plus an 8/0 or 6/0 bead at the top to put a jump ring through.  This design works equally well with smaller Czech11/0 seed beads (like the orange/gold and aqua/silver examples) or larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads (like the red/bronze and silver/clear examples).  Using the larger TOHO beads result in a slightly more elongated shape.  The last few photos show the pattern works equally well as a pendant to accompany the earrings.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Tudor Cross Pendant

I really love how this pendant turned out!  It comes in two flavors: Diamond-shaped and Cross-shaped.  Both require Superduos, 4mm and 6mm round beads or pearls, and 11/0 seed beads.  When experimenting with different color combinations, I found that a higher-contrast seed bead color accentuated the outline of the cross-shape better.  Between the smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads and larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads, I found the smaller ones worked slightly better.  However, larger TOHO beads still worked in this pattern (see the dark copper and bronze examples below).  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Bugle Squares

This stringed sequence of squares within squares makes for a lovely geometric necklace design. The pattern requires Czech #3 bugle beads (6.4mm), 11/0 seed beads, and 6x4mm rondelle crystals (or other similar accent bead).  It is highly recommended that you use Fireline for this pattern, otherwise the sharp edges of the bugle beads could sever your thread.  This piece was made using Czech #3 rainbow dark topaz brown (orange) bugle beads, light rainbow pink silver lined 11/0 seed beads, and light peach 6x4mm rondelle crystals.

FREE beading pattern for Netted Bezel on Russian Snake chain

Fire Mountain Gems (http://firemountaingems.com) now has resin opalescent multicolored cabochons (light or dark) that are absolutely fabulous.  They are inexpensive, and yet each one is unique and changes colors when viewed from different angles.  (Notice how the cabachon in this necklace is more orange from the front, but green from the side).  I’m loving these cabochons so much, I will likely be posting more patterns for them this month.  This post includes two patterns: one showing how to make a netted bezel for an 18x25mm cabochon, as well as instructions for how to make and attach a “Russian Snake” chain to it.  The center component of this necklace is made from one 18x25mm resin opalescent dark multicolored cabochon caged in a net made of brown 15/0 seed beads, green and bronze 11/0 seed beads, and 4mm satin copper Czech druk beads.  The “Russian Snake” chain is made from the same green and bronze 11/0 seed beads, and 4mm copper beads.

FREE beading pattern for Bugle Triangle Earrings

Using design components from my last post, I created a pattern for bugle triangle earrings that coordinate with the necklace in that post. Only Czech #3 bugle beads (6.4mm) with 10/0 seed beads will work for this pattern.  You also need a small number of 15/0 beads (3 for each earring) and 4mm pearls or crystals (2 for each earring), plus a 6/0 (or 8/0) bead and jump ring to complete each earring. It is highly recommended that you use Fireline for this pattern, otherwise the sharp edges of the bugle beads are likely to sever your thread.
