VINTAGE CRYSTAL EARRINGS

©2010, updated 2018 Deborah Roberti

Vintage Crystal Earrings

These earrings are made by first creating a bezel using the peyote stitch to hold the rivoli. Then you'll use right-angle weave and netting to add bicone crystals, fire-polished beads, seed beads and Delica beads around this peyote rivoli base. The pattern is fully illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions. Experience helpful but not necessary. Also makes a pretty matching medallion.

Stitch: Peyote, right-angle weave, netting

Beads Used: Size 15/0 and 11/0 Miyuki rocaille seed beads, size 11/0 Delica beads, 4mm bicone crystals, 3mm fire-polished beads and two 12mm rivolis or cabochons

Approx Finished Size: About one inch wide and 1.5 inches long (not including earring findings)

Pattern Price (Downloadable PDF only): $4.00
