Materials Used To make The  Project

Quick Project Steps

Prepare the Bezel Base: Start with a loop of 12 primary color 8/0 seed beads, adding one secondary color bead for learning purposes. First Hubble Stitch Round: Using 8/0 seed beads, create Hubble stitch units around the loop, adding an 11/0 seed bead between each unit. Second Hubble Stitch Round: Transition to 11/0 seed beads for a tighter round, pulling the bezel inwards, and use 15/0 seed beads between units to secure the rivoli crystal. Tightening the Bezel: Add two 15/0 seed beads between the top 11/0 beads of the second Hubble stitch round to tighten the bezel around the crystal. Decorating the Outer Edge: Embellish the outer edge with 2 or 3mm crystals, using 15/0 seed beads to attach each crystal. Attaching the Loop Bail: Secure the loop bail to the back of the pendant for a polished finish.
