Laguna DeLite Rivoli Necklace with Peyote Seed Bead Bezels
designed byCheri Carlson
Approximate Size18 Inches
The Rivolis in this necklace almost glow with tropical blue color!
Swarovski Rivoli stones make a splash in this beautiful necklace. The amazing Laguna DeLite color of the rhinestones really contrast with the deep brass tones of the chain and TOHO seed beads used in the rest of the design. These Rivolis are part of Swarovski's Innovations for Spring/Summer 2020. See more Innovations here.
Add a stopper bead to one yard of thread. Using a needle, thread an even number of TOHO Aiko 11/0 matte bronze precision cylinder seed beads. You will need enough beads to fit around a Swarovski 12mm Rivoli in Crystal Laguna DeLite LacquerPRO. We used 30 seed beads. Loop your thread back around through the beads to form a circle. Check the fit around the Rivoli and then set the Rivoli aside. Tie a knot in your thread.
Add another row of 11/0 Aiko beads to your peyote bezel. Then, add a row of TOHO 15/0 bead rounds in bronze. This is the back side of your bezel. At this point, we will start to cinch up the beads to form the bezel.
Add another row of 15/0 seed beads. Cinch the beads up to secure.
Move your thread so that it is coming out of the first row of the bezel to start working on the front of the bezel. Put your Swarovski Rivoli in place in the bezel. Add a row of 15/0 beads. Tighten the front of the bezel by weaving through the final row of beads again.
Position your thread to reinforce the back rows of 15/0 beads again.
Move your thread so that it is coming out of an 11/0 Aiko to the inside row of your bezel edge. Stitch on a Vintaj 5mm rib cable 18 gauge jump ring. If you are looking at the front of your rivoli bezel, this jump ring should sit behind an 11/0 Aiko to the inside of the outer row of beads (in other words, there is not a 15/0 seed bead in front of this Aiko). If you are looking at the back of your bezel, this jump ring would be behind an Aiko and a 15/0 seed bead. Weave the thread through the beads to secure the jump ring with 3-4 passes through the jump ring.
Stitch another 5mm jump ring to the outside edge your rivoli bezel nine Aiko beads over from the first one. If you are looking at the front of your rivoli bezel, this jump ring would be five 15/0 beads over from the first one. Again, this jump ring will sit behind an 11/0 Aiko to the inside of the outer row of beads (with no 15/0 seed bead in front).
Repeat steps 1-7 to make two more Rivoli bezels, for a total of three.
Link one of the Rivoli bezels to another by connecting the attached jump rings using a Vintaj natural brass 6mm rib cable 18 gauge jump ring between them. Link the last Rivoli bezel to the other side of one of the bezels in the same manner, using another 6mm jump ring.
Cut the Vintaj extra fine oval chain 18-inch necklace in half at the center link of the necklace. Attach one side to one end of your linked Rivolis using a 6mm jump ring. Attach the other half to the other end of your linked Rivolis using another 6mm jump ring.
