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.

This is an earring pattern to match the Twin Floret Lace necklace pattern in my last post.  This design requires the same beads as the necklace (11/0 Czech seed beads, 4mm pearls, and twin or Superduo beads).  Enjoy!

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!

FREE beading pattern for Enchanted Tree Necklace

Why do I call this the Enchanted Tree Necklace?  Because the reflective resin in the cabochon reminds me of tree bark on a trunk, the necklace strands remind me of leaves, and the fringe reminds me of branches — all elements of a tree.  On top of that, the dark color combination is electric, almost other-worldly and enchanting.  (The lighter color combination is softer, less dramatic, and more reminiscent of peach blossoms).  This design is composed of a netted bezel around an 18x25mm resin cabochon, embelleshed with 4mm crystals and coraled fringe, all hanging from a double St. Petersburg strand on either side.  This pattern demonstrates how to stitch and attach the double St. Petersburg strands, and illustrates the coraling technique used to create the branched fringe (including how to stitch it onto the netted bezel).  This is my favorite design yet using resin 18x25mm opalescent cabochons.  Enjoy!

FREE beading pattern for necklace Twin Lace

If you want to experiment with twin beads, there are several free patterns available on the internet for bracelets and earrings, but not as many for necklaces, so I created this one.  This is an intricate lacy design made with two-hole twin beads, pearls (4mm and 6mm), and two colors of 11/0 seed beads.  Photos below show it with darker colors (wine, black, and antique gold), as well as in lighter colors (off-white with iridescent clear beads) for a more bridal look.
