This 167 page book is crammed full of Rivoli beadwork using the sparkling, round, crystal cabochons much loved in the beading world.
Featuring over 75 projects and variations (plus over a hundred more project variations & ideas), there is something for everyone. The projects range from small to large and cover earrings, bracelets, pendants, necklaces and even a beaded needle case cover and a scarf ring!
The book begins with the basics of Rivoli bezelling (showing all of the materials, techniques, tips & information you need to get started). It then separates into 5 different chapters:
- Seed Beads
- Extra Sparkle (the best accompaniment for crystals is of course... more crystals!)
- Shaped Beads (don't worry, I used just 2 different shapes and never more than 1 shape per project)
Each chapter has multiple projects along with any necessary technique instructions specific to that area of beadwork.
In addition to lots of full-page photos (so you can see all the detail), every project lists: the quantity and size of beads you will need, the colours used, the techniques needed, variation ideas and detailed step-by-step instructions using a mix of text, diagrams and photos.
