Instructions

Finished Size: 18 3/4"

Step 1:
Use the toothpick to apply a small amount of E6000 to the inside of the rivoli setting and the back side of the rivoli. Place the rivoli into the setting and let dry.

Step 2: Once completely dry, use 21" of beading wire to string the rivoli setting to the center of the wire. Use both wire ends to string 1 medium Montana round and 1 crimp tube. Snug the crimp tube down to the crystal round, and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover. Set aside.



Step 3: Use three 24" pieces of beading wire to string 1 crimp tube, 1 large olivine round, 1 squaredelle, 1 large olivine round, and 1 crimp tube to the center of the wires. Crimp the crimp tubes and cover each crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.

Step 4: On one side of the centered beads, braid the three wires together for 1 1/4". Use all three wire ends to string 1 small olivine round, 1 medium Montana round, and 1 small olivine round. Braid the wires together for 1 1/4". Use all three wire ends to string 1 small Montana round, 1 medium olivine round, and 1 small Montana round. Braid the wires together for 1 1/4".



Step 5: Use all three wire ends to string 1 crimp tube. Crimp the tube and cover with 1 crimp cover. String 1 large olivine round, 1 squaredelle, 1 large olivine round, and 1 crimp tube. Crimp the tube and cover with 1 crimp cover.



Step 6: Braid the wires together for 1 1/4". Use all three wire ends to string 1 small olivine round, 1 medium Montana round, and 1 small olivine round.

Step 7: Braid the wires together for 1 1/4". Use all three wire ends to string 1 crimp tube and the ring half of the toggle clasp. Pass back through the tube, and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover.

Step 8: On the other side of the centered beads, braid the three wires together for 1 1/4". Use all three wire ends to string 1 small Montana round, 1 medium olivine round, and 1 small Montana round. Braid the wires together for 1 1/4". Use all three wire ends to string 1 small olivine round, 1 medium Montana round, and 1 small olivine round. Braid the wires together for 1 1/4".

Step 9: Repeat Step 5. Braid the wires together for 1 1/4". Use all three wire ends to string 1 small Montana round, 1 medium olivine round, and 1 small Montana round. Repeat Step 7, using the bar half of the toggle clasp.

Step 10: Use one end of the wire set aside in Step 2 to string 1 crimp tube and 1 half of the clasp. Measure and adjust the wire to be sure the rivoli will fall at the center of the necklace, and crimp. Cover the crimp tube with 1 crimp cover. Repeat for the other half of the necklace.
