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 Palace Pearl Earrings

Here is a design for earrings to coordinate with the Palace Pearls necklace pattern from my last post.  This is a nice simple design that is quick to make, requiring only 4mm and 6mm pearls, 4mm crystals, and 11/0 seed beads (plus a 6/0 or 8/0 seed bead at the top for a jump ring).  I made the gold/white/aqua version below using smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads, and the green/bronze version with larger TOHO 11/0 beads, and the pattern works equally well with either.

FREE beading pattern for Palace Pearls necklace

This design took a bit of trial and error to work through, but I am very happy with the end result.  It is a fairly simple pattern to make, and requires 4mm and 6mm pearls, 4mm bicone crystals, and 11/0 seed beads.  I made this design with both the smaller Czech 11/0 beads (the gold, aqua, and ivory version shown below) as well as larger TOHO 11/0 beads (bronze and green version), and although the design works with either, I think the smaller Czech 11/0 beads look a bit better.  The close-up photo of both necklaces provides a good example of how different Czech and TOHO 11/0 bead sizes really are.  I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post. Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Pearl Petals necklace

This is one of my original designs made entirely out of 11/0 seed beads and different size pearls (4mm, 6mm, and 8mm).  The piece below was made with teal blue pearls with silver metallic and teal 11/0 seed beads, but I have included other photos showing of another version of it, which I made shorter (almost choker length) with ivory pearls and iris brown and gold metallic 11/0 seed beads.  I love how both color combinations turned out.  This pattern is relatively simple to make, and one of my favorites.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Regal Earrings

You may have seen similar versions of these earrings on Pinterest, Linda’s Crafty Inspirations Blog (http://craftyinspirationbylinda.blogspot.com/2014/05/playing-with-my-beads_6.html), or even Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2rKYnRVXFw), but I had trouble following the pictures or videos posted to get just the right number and size of seed beads to make the design work.  So I came up with a pattern for this design that seems to work consistently, using 15/0 and 11/0 seed beads, 6mm pearls and bicone crystals, surrounding a 10mm round faceted crystal.  Remember to repeat the steps with 15/0 seed beads on both sides of the earring (front and back) as indicated in the pattern, to ensure the larger beads are stable and secured.  This can work nicely as a pendant as well. Enjoy!
