Swarovski rivolis make gorgeous centers for beaded projects. Check out this collection of awesome beaded Swarvoski rivoli earrings tutorials which really takes you past the simple round varieties! First up is Sidonia's beautiful bronze earrings video tutorial. Her design has open sides which shows off the crystal.  I also love the use of bronze seedbeads.

Stephanie over on Bronzebeadedjewelry created lovely round beaded "Tivoli" Swarovski rivoli earrings with a twist! She made it into a drop shape as you can see in her tutorial.

Svetlana McDaniel's beaded rivoli earrings are round but the way she encased them is different from most. Unusually, she uses just 11/0 beads, not a mixture of bead types.  If you can't handle tiny 15/0 beads, then this one is for you!

I do like rivoli earrings where the round crystals sit inside a square. Aleshia of BeadifulNights shows how versatile these are as earrings, pendants or rings.  Her Alluring earrings tutorial is here. If you cannot afford larger rivolis, then this one is for you.  Want the matching set?  The rivoli ring tutorial is here.  And the pendant one is here.

 This bicone cornered design tutorial is by Inna Lazareva over on livemaster.ru.  The post shares all sorts of creative ideas - you can also incorporate them into necklace designs.
