FREE beading pattern for Framed Pearl Drops necklace

Here is another lovely necklace design featuring pearl drops framed with seed beads, hanging off a dazzling row of smaller pearls and Superduo beads.  This piece requires 4mm and 6mm pearls or druks, 11/0 and 15/0 TOHO seed beads, and Superduo beads.  I notice when working with metallic colors, mixing darker silver with lighter silver (or darker gold with lighter gold) seems to give a certain depth that I really like.  The necklace below was made with Superduo beads that are half bright silver, half crystal (clear), nickel TOHO 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads, and dark purple 4mm and 6mm pearls.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
