Since I've been off sick, I haven't done much crafting, so a class at The Bead Shop Nottingham was good for me, it meant I actually made something.
It was a beadweaving class using a crystal rivoli (the sparkly bit in the centre), number 11/0 seed beads and mini duos. I used two colours of the duos.
As ever, it's hard to get a good photo of sparkly jewellery, but this will have to do! Instead of showing you one good photo, I'll show you several mediocre ones.
It was a fun pattern and quick and easy to do. The bezel is in right-angle-weave rather than the usual peyote so it was nice to learn a new bezelling stitch.
This is a photo of the back so you can see what the back of the rivoli looks like. As you can see, it's pointed, I'm not sure why, perhaps that makes it easier to capture in a bezel than if it were flat backed? I now need to decide what to string this on, I think I perhaps need to make a bead-woven necklace.
