FREE beading pattern for Sunburst Rivoli Earrings

This is an earring pattern to coordinate with the Sunburst Rivoli Pendant in my last post.  Each component requires a 12mm rivoli, 2-hole triangle beads, 4mm bicone crystals, with 15/0 and 11/0 Miyuki seed beads.  I tried this pattern with Czech 11/0 seed beads in the aqua/silver piece below, which did work, but the Miyuki’s were a bit more uniform and worked a bit better.  The 6/0 or 8/0 seed bead at the top allows you to loop a jump ring through so the component can be attached to an ear clip or hook, but this is optional if you prefer to glue a post to the back instead.  I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
