FREE beading pattern for Sunburst Rivoli Pendant

This is my first experiment with 2-hole triangle beads, as well as my first design using a large (20mm) rivoli.  This pattern only works with 11/0 Miyuki seed beads, and also requires 15/0 seed beads and 4mm crystals.  I strung the pendant on 0.015in beading wire, making two loops  through 6/0 seed beads to create a “bow” shape above the pendant.  To match the strung part of the necklace with the pendant, I used 6mm crystals the same color as the 2-hole triangle beads.  (Although the diagram only includes steps for making the pendant, you can examine the photos to determine stringing pattern for the rest of the necklace).  The pendant can also be hung on a cord, chain, or ribbon instead, if desired.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Coraled-V necklace

This pattern uses the coraling stitch, common in beading.  But what is unique about this pattern is the strand that makes the V-shape that the coral strands are attached to.  This strand is basically a modified spiral rope stitch with an extra stabilization row along the top to make it lie flat, and spaces on the bottom that are ideal for “sprouting” coral strands.  For this piece, I used black and copper 11/0 seed beads, 15/0 black seed beads for the stabilization row, and different colored drilled chips (blue, green, purple, and orange) for the coraled strands.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Butterfly Lace

For my first post in March (looking forward to Spring), I created a lacy butterfly pattern using netting techniques made entirely of 11/0 seed beads.  The butterflies in this pattern are easier to see when adjacent butterfly components alternate colors, so I made this one with all colors of the rainbow.  The blue version is nice too, but you see more the circles between butterflies when woven with only one color.  Enjoy!
