This is a lovely pendant design, which features a crystal rivoli inside a 5-pointed floral frame. The pattern requires a 14mm crystal rivoli, 6mm pearls or bicone crystals, Superduo beads, 11/0 seed beads, and jewelry glue for the last step. I experimented with larger (TOHO) and smaller (Czech) 11/0 seed beads, and both seemed to work equally well. I included a step at the end to glue the the rivoli back to its beaded cage in the back, because I found that with some of the pieces I made, the rivoli could pop out if you twisted the component hard enough. I used E6000 clear glue for that step (same as pictured in the Materials photo in my DIY Sweater Clip post). I was able to string the pendant on a chain by inserting a jump ring through the middle of one of the sides of the finished piece. I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
