FREE beading pattern for Sophia Bracelet

The strand on the necklace of my last post was essentially a modified spiral rope stitch with an extra stabilization row to make it lie flat.  I came up with a variation on the same concept using different size seed beads and a more decorative stabilization row to make a bracelet.  This is my first bracelet pattern, but I like it so much I will probably create a matching necklace for it in my next post.  I particularly enjoyed experimenting with different color combinations in this design.  This is easy and quick to make, and requires only 6/0 TOHO seed beads (in 3 colors) and 11/0 TOHO seed beads (1 color, matching one of the 6/0 colors).  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Crystal Lace Earrings

I modified a component from the Crystal Lace necklace pattern from my last post to create a matching earring — I used the same beads for these earrings as the necklace, so you can refer to my previous post for more details on materials used.  These are fairly quick to make.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Crystal Lace

This pattern requires 11/0 seed beads, 4mm pearls or druks, and 4mm bicone crystals, and is made in one continuous row.  Either larger TOHO 11/0 beads or smaller Czech 11/0 beads work equally well in this design.  I used bronze TOHO 11/0 seed beads, 4mm bronze druks, and metallic purple bicone crystals in the necklace below, and Czech 11/0 gold seed beads, white 4mm pearls, and 4mm Tanzanite AB bicone crystals in the other piece. I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Twin Drop

I’m very happy to be posting BeadDiagrams.com’s 50th free pattern!  This is a design that features a top-drilled crystal as the center component, framed in a v-shaped strand made from twin beads and 11/0 seed beads.  Although I used twin beads in both of the pieces below, I believe Superduo’s would work just as well.  The purple piece was made with a clear AB drop crystal, purple opaque satin twin beads, and 11/0 light purple rainbow silver lined seed beads.  The peach piece was made with a light orange drop crystal, transparent champagne terra pearl twin beads, and 11/0 silver lined seed beads.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Bugle Triangles

This stringed sequence of triangles makes for a lovely geometric necklace design. There are no substitutions on this pattern: only Czech #3 bugle beads (6.4mm) with 10/0 seed beads will work.  (I tried 11/0, but the resulting triangles were not flat).  You also need a small number of 15/0 beads (3 for each triangle) to make all the connections, and to weave these triangles together with one continuous thread.  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. I included a variation (orange) that uses 4mm pearls between triangles, and although that gives a nice accent, I like the original design (purple) a bit better because of the “S” curve of 10/0 edge beads that start from the previous triangle and continue around the top of the next triangle.  Stay tuned: the next post will include a pattern for matching earrings!
