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!

FREE beading pattern for Celtic Medallion necklace and earrings

This is absolutely one of my favorite patterns, and I’ve made many of these in different colors.  This necklace is ideal for folks who prefer more dainty, less “statement” type necklaces, and the center component works great for matching earrings.  You can even make just the center component as a pendant, and put it on a chain or ribbon.  This was a more difficult pattern to write a diagram for, but hopefully the diagram I came up with is still easy enough to read and follow (although you may need to zoom in for some parts).  This pattern only requires 15/0 and 11/0 seed beads, and 6mm bicone crystals or pearls.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for Crystal Pearl Earrings

This is a simple pattern for earrings that coordinate nicely with the previous post for the Rivoli Pendant necklace pattern, and are made from a central 8mm bicone crystal surrounded by light gold 4mm pearls, 4mm and 6mm round crystals, and 11/0 light gold seed beads.  These earrings are easy to make, and can be made fairly quickly.  Make them to wear at a Christmas party, or give them as a gift!
