Antique Necklace

December 17 @ 10:30 am 12:30 pm

“Antique Necklace”

This necklace is the perfect way to learn how to bezel a rivoli beginning with the traditional circular peyote technique, then building layers to add crystals and more sparkle. You can make the 3-rivoli necklace as shown, or add more rivolis for a dramatic show stopper of a necklace. Once you learn the pattern, you can easily make a matching bracelet or earrings as well!

This piece is designed by Deb Roberti and is available for purchase on her website: www.aroundthebeadingtable.com.  Deb has generously allowed us to distribute copies of this pattern to participants who attend this class.


Instructor: Laura

Technique: Circular peyote/bezeling

Difficulty Level: Intermediate 1
If you’ve taken a few beginner classes, are starting to get comfortable with the language of beading and feel ready for the next step, this is the perfect class for you. This project will be just a little more complex than the beginner pieces, but still great for new beaders.
