Charlotte Beaded Rivoli Earrings Tutorial

By on Sunday, May 24, 2015 4 Comments

Charlotte seed beads are special.  They are cut seed beads i.e. they each have one facet.  This gives the beads more reflective quality than ordinary seed beads.  Once you have used them, they become hard to resist.  The  available colors and finishes are fantastic. I love the iris ones because of their iridescent qualities.  Team them up with rivoli crystals and the design will just sparkle and pop!


So if you agree, then you will love this rosette charlotte beaded rivoli earrings tutorial by Kerrie Slade over on Preciosa-Ornela.

A beautiful rosette net pattern covers the rivolis giving little peeks of the underlying crystals. The design uses a set of 3 for each dangle but you need not make all three if you prefer smaller ones.

  2. The link is working now. I love the gold charlottes used in the tutorial. I think this would look great with a purple rivoli.
