FREE beading pattern for Trinity Necklace

This design is all about groups of three, which inspired its title.  This pattern requires 6mm and 4mm round beads or pearls, 6mm bicone crystals, and 1 or 2 colors of 11/0 seed beads.  Smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads work just as well as larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads do with this design.  Using the larger seed beads results in slightly larger triangle components.  This difference can be seen in both close-up images, which show the smaller seed bead components above the larger seed bead components for comparison.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!

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 Lotus Lace Earrings

I absolutely love this new Lotus Lace earring design.  It requires 11/0 seed beads, 2x5mm 2-hole Superduo or twin beads, and 6mm pearls or round beads.  This pattern also includes a “shorter variation” (shown in the light blue, white, and silver earrings below) as an alternative to the longer version.  This pattern works equally well with either smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads, or with larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads, and works with either Superduo or twin beads.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Twin Floret Lace

This is a lacy pattern I designed using Czech 11/0 seed beads, 4mm pearls, and twin beads.  Either twin beads or Superduo beads will work with this pattern.  (I used twin beads for the white, gold, and pink piece, and Superduo beads for the blue/silver and purple/grey pieces).  I plan to include a pattern for matching earrings in my next post.  Enjoy!
