Materials Used To make The  Project

Quick Project Steps

Prepare the Beads: Start with a 14mm Rivoli and 11/0 seed beads. String approximately four feet of green Wildfire beading thread.
Create the Base: Tie off a loop of 16 seed beads to form a circle. This serves as the base for your pendant.
Add Petals: Sew through four beads, add rondelles and seed beads to form petals around the Rivoli's base.
Insert the Rivoli: Use the netting technique to secure the Rivoli within the beaded base.
Embellish the Sides: Apply the Right Angle Weave technique to add crystal rondelles and seed beads around the Rivoli.
Attach the Tassel: Add a silk tassel at the bottom for an elegant finish.
Complete the Pendant: Reinforce the beadwork and finish off the thread ends.
