Scalloped Lace Necklace/Bracelet Pattern



This pretty pattern can be made into a necklace or bracelet. It is not too hard to make so you should be able to finish quickly and be wearing it before you know it.  Use 2 colors of seed beads or you can make all in one color too.

A = Miyuki, 11° SEED bead
B = Miyuki, 11° SEED bead
C = 4mm Fire-polished crystals, Bronze

Start by waxing and stretching your thread, use Nymo D or C-Lon & a #11 or #12 beading needle. I used Fireline 6lb. crystal.  Tie in a "stopper" bead, leaving about an 8" tail and begin at step #1.


1. Pick up 1A, 1B, 3A, 1B, go with thread up thorough the 1st A bead just added.
2. Pick up 1A, 3B, 1A, go with thread down through the 1st A and 1st B bead, step #1.

6. Pick up 6B, go with thread down through the 3 B beads as shown and up through the first 3 B beads just added in this step.
7. Pick up 3B, 2A, 2B, 1C, 2B, go with thread down through 2A and 6 B beads as shown in illustration, and up through the first 3 B beads, step #6, and the first 3 B beads and 1st A bead just added in this step.

10. Pick up 2B, 5A, go with thread up through the 3 B beads, step #7, down through the B bead, step #9, and the 2 B beads just added in this step.
11. Pick up 2B, 9A, go with thread up through the 2nd and 3rd B beads, step #6, the 3 B beads, step #7, down through the 1 B bead, step #9, 2 B beads, step #10, and the 2 B beads just added in this step.

Weave the working thread into the necklace and end. Repeat the clasp directions in the same manner at the other end of necklace after removing the stopper bead.
