Goes Virtual!

Blossoming Rivoli Necklace and Earrings

Zoom logon will be sent to paid registrants 

About the instructor: Nicki Russo is a native of southern New Jersey. Being raised by crafty, talented parents, her childhood was filled with learning all types of hand crafts. In the mid ‘90s, she rediscovered bead stringing and wirework jewelry. Within a few years began bead weaving and bead embroidery. After several years of traveling across the country to attend workshops and retreats with the masters, she began to create her own designs. 

Description:  Create this lovely necklace and earring set using Swarovski 27 mm and 14 mm rivolis. Rivolis are bezeled with peyote stitch, then surrounded by Dragon Scale beads. The leaves curl and ruffle, making each one unique. The necklace is done with chenille stitch and is finished with a matching toggle and ring.

You will learn to bezel using tubular peyote and to cover the back in netting. You’ll also learn stitch in-the-ditch and netting for petals, brick and chenille for the rope, and prismatic right-angle weave-3 for the clasp.
