FREE beading pattern for Bugle Deco Necklace

This design is a geometric V-shaped necklace using Czech #3 (6.4mm) bugle beads and 11/0 seed beads.  It is pictured below with the Bugle Deco Earrings pattern from my previous post as the pendant, but really could be used with any pendant.  As always, when working with bugle beads, I recommend using Fireline to keep the sharp edges of the bugle beads from severing the thread.  When making the pendant for this necklace, I substituted the 6/0-8/0 bead at the top with a regular 11/0 seed bead, since no jump ring has to go through it to attach to the necklace.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Bugle Deco Earrings

The geometric angles in this design give it an Art Deco feel from the Roaring Twenties.  These earrings are fairly quick to make, and require round beads or crystals (4mm, 6mm, and 8mm), Czech #3 (6.4mm) bugle beads, 11/0 seed beads, plus an 8/0 or 6/0 bead at the top to put a jump ring through.  This design works equally well with smaller Czech11/0 seed beads (like the orange/gold and aqua/silver examples) or larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads (like the red/bronze and silver/clear examples).  Using the larger TOHO beads result in a slightly more elongated shape.  The last few photos show the pattern works equally well as a pendant to accompany the earrings.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Tudor Cross Pendant

I really love how this pendant turned out!  It comes in two flavors: Diamond-shaped and Cross-shaped.  Both require Superduos, 4mm and 6mm round beads or pearls, and 11/0 seed beads.  When experimenting with different color combinations, I found that a higher-contrast seed bead color accentuated the outline of the cross-shape better.  Between the smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads and larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads, I found the smaller ones worked slightly better.  However, larger TOHO beads still worked in this pattern (see the dark copper and bronze examples below).  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

FREE beading pattern for Diamond Rivoli pendant

I absolutely love this pendant pattern.  You need a 14mm rivoli crystal, 4mm coordinating crystals and pearls, a drop bead, and two colors of 11/0 TOHO seed beads (Japanese 11/0 seed beads might also work, but not the smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads).  Some of the examples below show variations on the drop part of this pendant, which you can experiment with yourself (or even omit if you like).  As opposed to hanging this pendant on a chain, I decided to hang it on 1/4-inch ribbon, finished with crimp ends for clasp.

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 Regal Earrings

You may have seen similar versions of these earrings on Pinterest, Linda’s Crafty Inspirations Blog (http://craftyinspirationbylinda.blogspot.com/2014/05/playing-with-my-beads_6.html), or even Youtube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2rKYnRVXFw), but I had trouble following the pictures or videos posted to get just the right number and size of seed beads to make the design work.  So I came up with a pattern for this design that seems to work consistently, using 15/0 and 11/0 seed beads, 6mm pearls and bicone crystals, surrounding a 10mm round faceted crystal.  Remember to repeat the steps with 15/0 seed beads on both sides of the earring (front and back) as indicated in the pattern, to ensure the larger beads are stable and secured.  This can work nicely as a pendant as well. Enjoy!
