FREE beading pattern for Diamond Rivoli pendant

I absolutely love this pendant pattern.  You need a 14mm rivoli crystal, 4mm coordinating crystals and pearls, a drop bead, and two colors of 11/0 TOHO seed beads (Japanese 11/0 seed beads might also work, but not the smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads).  Some of the examples below show variations on the drop part of this pendant, which you can experiment with yourself (or even omit if you like).  As opposed to hanging this pendant on a chain, I decided to hang it on 1/4-inch ribbon, finished with crimp ends for clasp.

FREE beading pattern for Star Rivoli necklace

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.

FREE beading pattern for necklace Twin Rivoli

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.

FREE beading pattern for Rivoli Pendant

This is a stunning pendant stitched from 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads, 6mm round crystals, 4mm pearls, surrounding a 14mm rivoli crystal in the center.  I added an additional drop on the bottom of this pendant (not shown in the pattern), but the pendant works beautifully without that.  This piece was made from light gold pearls, light gold seed beads, and garnet red crystals, making it an elegant necklace for the Christmas season.  The pendant can be connected via jump ring to a chain, or strung on a beaded wire with matching pearls and crystals, as shown below (and in the pattern).
