My very talented friend, Hollie, designed a pattern for an encased, "captured" rivoli. The top photo is the front. It's hard to see, but the rivoli sits in the middle of the donut of crystals, so it looks like it is floating.
I decided to bead the back, rather than leave it open. I just did a loose peyote that looks kind of floral like.
Here is a necklace in cobalt colors. So far, I have made several of these beautiful necklaces because they are so fun and colorful. I'm going to make some summer colors soon.
Thank you to my brother-in-law, Gary, for the great photos.
