FREE beading pattern for necklace Crystal Net

This is a fairly easy pattern modified from a similar pattern I originally found on another blog (http://cartonsetperles.canalblog.com/archives/2011/04/19/20928261.html).  It uses two rows of stitching to make the basic netting pattern, plus a 3rd row to even out and stabilize the edge.  I love the color combination in this piece, made using copper and purple 11/0 seed beads with 4mm and 6mm purple AB crystals. Stay tuned for next post, where I’ll share a pattern for matching earrings!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Twin Lace

If you want to experiment with twin beads, there are several free patterns available on the internet for bracelets and earrings, but not as many for necklaces, so I created this one.  This is an intricate lacy design made with two-hole twin beads, pearls (4mm and 6mm), and two colors of 11/0 seed beads.  Photos below show it with darker colors (wine, black, and antique gold), as well as in lighter colors (off-white with iridescent clear beads) for a more bridal look.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Lacy Net

This is an elegant pattern for a beaded lace collar necklace, made from 11/0 seed beads and 4mm pearls.  There are five rows of stitching required in the pattern, so it takes a while to make, but the end result is an ornate yet graceful design with a bit of old-world style.  Substituting 4mm crystals for the pearls would look nice as well.  (I think this could make a nice vintage-looking bridal piece if made from white or off white beads and pearls).  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Basic Spiral Rope

This is probably one of the most versatile patterns, as it makes a rope that is not stiff (like Herringbone or Russian Spiral Ropes are), so it hangs and moves nicely. I like to tie the beaded rope into a Celtic Heart Knot and add a pendant or tassle for a focal point, as shown below. (FusionKnots.com has nice instructions on how to tie a Celtic Heart Knot).  The pattern includes a variation on the spiral rope for using 2 different sized seed beads (demonstrated in the yellow necklace), and also shows how you can form a “V” in a spiral rope to hang a pendant.  The necklace below was made with 11/0 seed beads.  Spiral ropes can be used to make necklaces or bracelets.  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.
