Circle Drop Lace Necklace pattern - Free pattern

 The Circle Drop Necklace pattern is so simple to make, but big on looks. Use the fire-polished crystals as shown in the sample, for a casual addition to a pair of jeans. Or you can use Swarovski crystals for a necklace that is suitable for an evening out. This is another necklace that you can make in a couple of hours
A = Miyuki11/0 seed bead, color 1
B = Miyuki 11/0 seed bead, color 2

C = 4, 5, 6 or 7mm fire-polished



Start by waxing and stretching your thread, use Nymo D or C-Lon & a #11 or #12 beading needle. Tie in a “stopper” bead, leaving about an 8” tail and begin at step #1.



1.  a) Pick up 9A, 1B, 8A, go with thread forward through the 9 A and 1 B beads just added in this step.
b) Pick up 3B, go with thread right to left, through the B bead, up through the 8 A beads and left to right through the 1st A, added in step #1a.








2. a) Pick up 13A, 1B, 8A, go with thread forward through the 5th through 13th A beads and the B bead just added this step.
b) Pick up 3B, go with thread right to left, through the B bead added in step # 2a, and forward through the 1st B bead just added in this step.






3. a) Pick up 5A, 1C, 1A, go with thread up through the C bead just added in this step. b) Pick up 5A, go with thread up through the 3rd B bead, step #1b or step #2b, right to left, through the B bead added in step #1a or step #2a, up through the 8 A beads added in step #1a or step #2a, left to right, through the 1st A bead added in step #1a (first time only) or the 5th A bead (of the 9A) added in step #2a (every time after) and through the 1st through 5th A beads added in the next repeat of step #2a to the right as shown.





4. Continue necklace by repeating steps #2a through step #3b until you reach the length that you want your necklace to be.

 







To add clasp, Pick up 4A, clasp, 4A, go with thread up through 2 A beads added in the last repeat of step # 2b. Continue with thread around through the clasp beads several times. Weave in and end thread. Repeat the clasp directions in the same manner on the other end after removing the stopper bead.
