Basic Skills Necessary:

  • right angle weave
  • ability to control thread tension

Pattern Description:

Create a fabulously rich multi-layered pendant beginning with a rivoli and then adding layers of embellishment, colour and texture. Pick a monochromatic palette for deep and subtle complexity, or choose contrasts galore for explosive bling!

While you don't really have to be super-proficient at right angle weave specifically, you do need to have some beading experience as the thread paths may be awkward to conceive for beginning beaders, and you must be able to control your thread tension since the domed shape requires tight tension to draw the beads together.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Pendant is under 2" in diameter


  • 14mm rivoli (1)
  • 6x9mm fire-polished rondelles (8)
  • 4mm fire-polished beads (16)
  • 3mm fire-polished beads (about 35)
  • Size 11 seed beads (small amount)
  • Size 8 seed beads (8)
  • Japanese fringe beads (about 40)
  • Your favourite Beading Needle
  • Your favourite Beading Thread

You Will Also Need:

  • scissors
  • thread conditioner (optional)
  • beading surface

  • magnifiers!
