Free Hand Embroidery Necklace Patterns

A friend of mine showed me a beautiful embroidered necklace that she owns, and I knew I had to try making one.  Well, I couldn’t stop at just one, so I have a whole slough of free hand embroidery necklace patterns to share with you today!  I’m so excited to show them off!  If you need help with any of the stitches, I have video guides on my embroidery stitches guide page.

The necklaces turned out so beautiful!  It was pretty difficult for me to find high quality jewelry that would work for embroidery, but I finally hunted some down.  Each embroidery pendant frame has a metal insert that fits perfectly inside, and the more ornate ones can be an embroidered necklace or broach. To make things easier for all of you, I decided to stock these pendants in my shop here.  (If you aren’t in the US, use my Etsy shop here.)  I’m so excited to be able to offer them to you!  The finished necklaces make beautiful gifts!

I wrote up an entire tutorial and filmed a little video that will show you how to assemble the necklaces.  Find that on the post about my embroidery pendants and how to put embroidery in a necklace.

Feel free to change the colors in any of my embroidery necklace patterns.  I’d love to see some fun color combos for fall!

Embroidery Necklace with Flowers

I added a little gold thread in the one with the gold chain.  It’s hard to work with, but can be very pretty!

This is one of the more ornate settings that can be an embroidered broach or necklace.  The copper color is so pretty!

I'm not sure. You might want to look at stamping blanks. I don't sell any kits that small, but I can get just the inserts for you in the bigger sizes.

Great idea for teacher gifts. Hopefully I am able to make some for my grandchildren's teachers. Names would be great also and Christian symbol. Wow I could go crazy with ideas.

Thank you a million times! I adore all of your mini patterns so much! I just used one of the floral patterns to make a hanging decoration for my moms rearview mirror. I have a quick question, I just started doing embroidery a few months ago but I think I have quickly become pretty good at it, with the exception of the satin stitch, i just seem to struggle with keeping my shape as it should be. I see that a lot of your designs use the satin stitch and they look amazing! I desperately want to do the marbled looking pattern but I know mine would not look like yours. Do you have any tips that may help me improve mine? Do you outline/pad your satin stitch 1st? If so which stitch and how many strands? Thank you in advance for any info you can share.

Satin stitch is definitely a hard one to master. Doing it on this small of a scale can be extra frustrating, so I recommend practicing on something bigger until you get the hang of it. I just did a video for a different pattern that might help you. You can watch it here:
