This is a great pattern for framing a 14mm crystal rivoli in a twin bead bezel. Although I’ve seen photos of similar Superduo bead bezels, I hadn’t come across any patterns for them, so I decided to create one. (I included a photo of what the back looks like, just for reference). The strand part of the necklace is also something I haven’t seen done with twin beads, but I like how narrow the strand is and how it brings in elements from the bezel. I liked this design so much I made a variation with 3 purple rivolis with lovely results. This piece was made with gold-lined 15/0 beads, black and gold-lined 11/0 seed beads, matte gold twin beads, 4mm champagne bicone crystals, a black drop bead, and a Swarovski 14mm “golden shadow” crystal rivoli. My next post will include matching earrings.
