DIY Blackberry or Raspberry Necklace Beading Pattern and Tutorial

Beading Pattern: Blackberry or Raspberry Jewelry DIY


Hi guys!

Sorry it has been a while since I shared a project.  I have been taking it easy in the blogging department lately but I'm still crafting.  When I left you I was on a beading and jewelry making kick trying to use up some of my bead stash.  I'm still on that kick.


I love blackberries! Not only do I think blackberries are really yummy, I grew up in the American South.  I have fond memories of picking wild ones with my mother as a kid before she passed away. When I saw this picture of this necklace at Custom Made, I just knew I had to have my own blackberry necklace.

Not only is the 2k price tag out of the ballpark for me, I wanted to come up with my own version but had no clue how to make the berries.  I found a tutorial on making raspberries but unfortunately the tutorial was written in Russian (which I do not speak).  Fortunately, the pics are so good that I managed to do it without written instruction, so I decided to share.

For the berries I used sized 6/0 opaque black glass seed beads.  For the inside of the berries, I used some inexpensive acrylic round beads.  For the stems I used size 12/0 emerald seed beads. I picked it all up at Hobby Lobby.

I promise it's way easier than it looks. I kept the pattern open on my laptop when I did the first couple and afterwards I was able to do it without even looking at it.

  1. These are great! They look fantastically realistic too. I also grew up in the South and still reside there - in Alabama!
