Jewelry set with rivoli crystals
Browsing the internet, I have repeatedly stopped and admired beautiful, elegant jewelery with rivoli crystals. On the occasion of shopping, I bought a sample of several colors in various sizes (pictured from above, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm and 16mm). Certainly the problem for me is the use of the smallest crystals, because it is a small thing that I can barely take with two fingers.
Sometimes I was watching my crystals and I still had no idea for the. The communion time has come and it turned out that I do not have any jewelry for my new blue dress. The choice fell on rivoli crystals in the color Capri blue size 10mm and beads toho 11/0 and 15/0 in ceylon smoke. I looked through a few tutorials and read on the internet how to wrap rivoli crystals. It seemed so simple 😀 And yet it was not. The crystals are small and not very handy. You have to tighten the beads, which form the basket, because it happened that the crystal jumped out anyway. Finally, after many fights I braided 8 crystals.
I planned to make a bracelet with six rivoli crystals and two earrings.
Entwined rivoli crystals I joined with Round Beads 3mm beads and finished with an elegant magnetic clasp.
I put the last two braided beads on the earwires. The earrings came out beautiful, elegant. They are about 3 cm long.
However, I have two unfinished crystals left. I braided the last crystals and extended my earrings. I think I like this version more, however.
I experimented a little with the photos, I tried to capture the crystal glow and took pictures in the sun.
