Basic Skills Necessary:

  • square stitch
  • right angle weave
  • peyote stitch

Pattern Description:

Use a variety of shaped seed beads to frame and embellish a rivoli, resulting in a beautifully intricate pendant. You will use twin beads to make the fastest and easiest bezel ever, use them some more of them to extend the flange, and use small seed beads, magatamas and farfalle to stiffen and decorate the frame, and then finally attach a ring on which to thread your necklace.

The instructions include three variations: a small version in which the final round is omitted, and two versions of the final round, one using fire-polished beads instead of seed beads for a more substantial and less delicate pendant.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • version 1 is 1.5" across
  • version 2 is 2" across

Materials:

  • 14mm rivoli (1)
  • Size 15 seed beads (5g)
  • Size 8 seed beads (about 40)

  • 3mm fire-polished beads (optional, variation) (26)
