Odd numbers usually work a lot better than even ones in designs.  So it is with this pentagonal beaded Swarovski rivioli and superduo pendant tutorial by Bead Diagrams.   Clusters of superduo and 6 mm round beads give this pendant design its 5 sides  It is quite an unusual approach for framing a round rivoli.

The pleasing pentagonal shape also occurs in nature.  Many starfish and the morning glory flower have that radial symmetry. Next time you eat okra or starfruit, take a closer look! The cross section of an apple will also show its seeds in a pentagonal arrangement.
