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!

FREE beading pattern for Rivoli Pendant

This is a stunning pendant stitched from 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads, 6mm round crystals, 4mm pearls, surrounding a 14mm rivoli crystal in the center.  I added an additional drop on the bottom of this pendant (not shown in the pattern), but the pendant works beautifully without that.  This piece was made from light gold pearls, light gold seed beads, and garnet red crystals, making it an elegant necklace for the Christmas season.  The pendant can be connected via jump ring to a chain, or strung on a beaded wire with matching pearls and crystals, as shown below (and in the pattern).

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 Diamond Pendant

The pendant part of this pattern can be used to make earrings too.  The pendant looks nice on a chain or on a beaded strand (as shown).  The pattern requires 6mm pearls and bicone crystals, with both 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads for the pendant.  The strand shown is made with 4mm pearls and bicone crystals and 8mm pearls with 11/0 seed beads.  I made another version with grey pearls and red crystals for a more “evening” less “bridal” look.  In both cases, I included an extra link between the pendant and strand than what is shown in the pattern in order to lengthen the pendant drop, but this is optional.  The pendant was made with regular Fireline beading thread, while the strand was made from Beadalon 0.15-inch beading wire, with crimp beads on the ends to attach the clasps and secure the beads in place.  One thing I like about this pattern is that it is simple, elegant, and does not take very long to make.  Enjoy!
