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!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Crystal Loops

The dark gold seed beads and bicones in this necklace give it a nice antique look. It takes many 4mm round crystals to make this piece, but it is lovely as a short necklace. I made another with dark blue 4mm pearls instead of crystals, which also worked well.  I can see this pattern working with almost any color (especially if the seed beads and bicones are a contrasting but complementary color to the crystals/pearls).  I hope you enjoy this design!

FREE Beading Pattern for necklace Icicle Fringe

This necklace was inspired by the movie “Frozen”, and I love how the ice blue crystals catch the light and combine with the bugle beads to resemble icicles. Even so, I think this design could work well with other color pallets.  This necklace requires many 4mm and 6mm round crystals to make, but it is worth it.  The necklace also has 11/0 silver seed beads with 12mm bugle beads.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Regal Pearls

This pattern has an old world feel, and is made with 4mm and 6mm white pearls, silver 11/0 seed beads, 5 2-hole focal beads, and a pearl drop with bead cap. I made a version with blue accents, and one with light green (which has a bit more “bling”). This pattern can substitute 4 pearls for the 2-hole beads as well, and includes a variation for the center piece.
