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).
