FREE beading pattern for Rivoli Pendant

This is a stunning pendant stitched from 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads, 6mm round crystals, 4mm pearls, surrounding a 14mm rivoli crystal in the center.  I added an additional drop on the bottom of this pendant (not shown in the pattern), but the pendant works beautifully without that.  This piece was made from light gold pearls, light gold seed beads, and garnet red crystals, making it an elegant necklace for the Christmas season.  The pendant can be connected via jump ring to a chain, or strung on a beaded wire with matching pearls and crystals, as shown below (and in the pattern).

Note: If you have trouble with the beginning of the pattern, visit http://www.aroundthebeadingtable.com/Tutorials/PeyoteBezel.html, which has a more detailed picture and diagram tutorial of the same exact process depicted in steps 1 – 6 of this diagram.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Pearl Netting

This is a lovely pattern, that was modified from a pattern that was originally posted at BeadsMagic.com.  After making the necklace, I found it needed another row to keep the pearls in place better (to prevent turning or twisting as they hang from the netting), so I created the pattern below to include that extra stabilizing row.  This necklace was made with dark and light copper 11/0 seed beads with 8mm dark copper pearls.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Two-Tone Lacy Net

I love how this color combination looks, and the way it brings out the design of the necklace.  This necklace was made with gold and hematite-black 11/0 seed beads with gold 6mm pearls.  It is fairly simple to make, and is striking when made with two contrasting colors like this.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace V-Pearls

This is a lovely classic looking pearl necklace, elegant yet simple.  The “V” gives it a flattering shape.  Shown here in a dusty purple color with silver accents, this is a pattern that can work with any color.  This pattern calls for 6mm and 8mm pearls and 11/0 seed beads.  (I’ve wanted to try this pattern using different color for the 6mm pearls to frame the 8mm pearls in the middle, but haven’t done it yet).  This one is fairly easy to make.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Diamond Motif

I absolutely love this pattern! The diamond component in this pattern works well for earrings or bracelet as well. This pattern is made with 4mm pearls and round faceted crystals woven with 11/0 seed beads. There is an optional link between components in the pattern, shown in the example with dark blue pearls below.  This pattern works with either contrasting colors or similar colors.  This pattern is easy and fun to experiment with different color combinations.  Enjoy!
