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 Seed Bead Lace

This is a elegant lacy pattern you can make only using seed beads.  For this piece I used white pearl 11/0 seed beads with silver accents, which gives more of a bridal or summery look, but it would work in any color.  It is one of those dress-down or dress-up necklaces — very versatile.  Enjoy!
