FREE beading pattern for Lotus Lace Bracelet

Expanding on the Lotus Lace Earrings design from my last post, I created a bracelet using similar elements from the earrings, woven together with a new gorgeous center component.  I haven’t created many bracelet patterns in the past, but I must say this one is my absolute favorite!  It is not one of my simpler patterns, but I tried to make the diagram as easy to follow as possible with clear step-by-step illustrations.  As with the earrings, this pattern works equally well with either smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads, or with larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads, and can work with either Superduo or twin beads (although Superduos work a little better I think).  The smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads result in a slightly shorter bracelet, but you can adjust the length of the bracelet in the final step when attaching the clasp (by either adding linked jump rings or by sewing the clasp into a shorter or longer loop of beads).

I absolutely love this new Lotus Lace earring design.  It requires 11/0 seed beads, 2x5mm 2-hole Superduo or twin beads, and 6mm pearls or round beads.  This pattern also includes a “shorter variation” (shown in the light blue, white, and silver earrings below) as an alternative to the longer version.  This pattern works equally well with either smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads, or with larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads, and works with either Superduo or twin beads.

FREE beading pattern for Bugle Diamond Earrings

Here is a pattern for earrings to match necklaces from my last two posts (Bugle Squares and Bugle Diamonds).  They require the same beads as the Bugle Diamonds necklace (Czech #3 bugle beads, 4mm crystals, and one or two colors of seed beads) plus two 6/0 seed beads and jump rings to connect the components to ear hooks or clips.  It is highly recommended that you use Fireline for this pattern, otherwise the sharp edges of the bugle beads could sever your thread.The green and gold earrings were made using Czech #3 rainbow dark green bugle beads, dark green 4mm round crystals, with light green rainbow and gold lined seed beads.  The grey earrings were made using Czech #3 (6.4mm) rainbow grey bugle beads, 4mm fire polished lilac luster round crystals, and light blue rainbow and light purple rainbow silver lined seed beads.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Bugle Diamonds

I experimented more with the bugle square-within-square component from my last post (Bugle Squares), and came up with another design I like very much.  This pattern results in a more rigid curve in the necklace than the design in my last post, so works best as a shorter necklace (13 to 15 components).  It is highly recommended that you use Fireline for this pattern, otherwise the sharp edges of the bugle beads could sever your thread.  I vertically attached 3 more components to the front of the green and gold necklace, to give it a more V-line in the front, which I thought was a nice embellishment to the pattern.  The green and gold piece was made using Czech #3 (6.4mm) rainbow dark green bugle beads, dark green 4mm round crystals, with light green rainbow and gold lined seed beads.  The grey piece was made using Czech #3 rainbow grey bugle beads, 4mm fire polished lilac luster round crystals, and light blue rainbow and light purple rainbow silver lined seed beads.  Enjoy!
