Hello Bead-Weavers! Leah here from Eureka Crystal Beads with a very informative blog for you today! Did you see my newest tutorial video (link below!) that was just posted today? (In it I show you a step-by-step method for creating a Peyote stitch beaded bezel for a 12mm Swarovski Crystal rivoli stone using Miyuki Delica beads, Toho size 15 seed beads, (Miyuki size 15 seed beads can also be used), and Czech size 15 “Charlottes” seed beads.
You might be asking yourself: “ok, so what fabulous new info do you have for me in this blog, Leah??”
WELL… What I have for you is the rivoli count for several other sizes of rivolis!! What this means is that if you watched my step-by-step video on how to bead a bezel for a 12mm rivoli (which used 30 beads around), you’ll now know how many beads to use for both larger and smaller sizes of rivolis so you can bead your little heart out and bezel, bezel, bezel! (If you’re anything like me, you’re going to get addicted to making rivoli bezels if you’ve never made one before!)
Below is a chart of the bead-counts for that first initial ring of Miyuki Delica beads to create your Peyote stitch beaded bezels!
