Preciosa TWIN - Rivoli Pendant Tutorial - free for personal use

Have you got your new TWIN two-hole seed beads and don´t know how to use it? I prepared a tutorial to show what I did with mine:
here is the exact list of materials I used in my design:
Apart from the Preciosa TWIN seed beads, I used:
1 14mm Swarovski rivoli - crystal silverback
22 size 11° Matsuno opaque rainbow dark blue
46 size 15° Miyuki transparent rainbow black
12 size 6° Matsuno frosted transparent rainbow purple
11 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones

  1. Hi:-)
    Very much legible tutorial.
    Nice way of bezel.
    I will have to get interested in buying the 'twins'.It not only looks so well,but also,thanks to them it's easier to bead.
    Thank You:-)

  2. Thanks a lot for your comment, Halinka! Twins are great, we just have to wait till they start a proper distribution around Europe with lots od different colours, the booklet I got from Preciosa looked very good.

  8. Ive been wanting to add a new style to my wire working and these twin beads are perfect along with the designs seed beeds can create. Yours is the first tutorial that has made sense to me on how to do this style of cabachon design. Thank you.

    Found you through Preciosa Facebook.

  11. i miss the part where you insert the rivoli crystal. does it have holes also? is it possible to use crystals without holes, how do i end the beading of this pendant? thank you.

    1. Hi! The rivoli is a round crystal with no holes. Its inserted before you tie the round of twin beads with size 11° seed beads (pic. No9, -start counting from the "stop bead"). Regarding finishing off your beadwork, I recommend to retrace your path in the last round one more time making a few half-hitch knots as you go. Here is a great link to all kinds of details and tips about the basics of beadwork: http://beadwork.about.com/od/beadweavingskills/Beadweaving-Skills.htm

  13. I love the twin, tila, czechmates, superduos, all the new additions but they are so darn pricey for people on fixed income. Maybe I should have a cheaper hobby but oh no way. LOL

  14. Oh, what a lovely piece. I am so glad you were finally able to share it with us. It is a very inspiring Designer Pendants, makes me what to make something with some of my Rivolis.
