This pattern was modified from a free Russian tutorial posted at http://biser.info/node/353793 for a lovely 14mm rivoli pendant surrounded by 4mm and 6mm green crystals. My modified version of the pattern starts the rivoli bezel with a peyote stitch instead of right angle weave, which changes the number of surrounding crystals to 8 instead of 10, allowing room for additional crystals in the outer row. This diagram also includes a pattern for a strand which coordinates nicely with this pendant, as an alternative to a gold chain. The piece below was made using an emerald green 14mm rivoli, 6mm round emerald green crystals, 4mm light green bicone crystals, and 11/0 and 15/0 gold seed beads. The strand was made with the same beads using beading wire, crimp beads, and clasp on the ends.
Note: If you have trouble with the beginning of the pattern, visit http://www.aroundthebeadingtable.com/Tutorials/PeyoteBezel.html, which has a more detailed picture and diagram tutorial of the same exact process depicted in steps 1 – 6 of this diagram.
