Darling Dahlias Instructions

Learn how to bezel around a crystal rivoli using circular peyote stitch and then add embellishment to create a jewellery set that’s perfect for all seasons and makes an ideal present.

Quick and easy to bead these flowers are endlessly versatile and you can add as much or as little sparkle as you desire. If you want to tone it down, then instead of crystal beads you can use larger seed beads. Or make larger petal loops and use even bigger crystal beads for extra bling!

This 7-page tutorial contains full instructions and tips as well as check lists for tools, materials and techniques needed to help you shop and plan.

Materials needed:

  • Size 11 Cylinder beads e.g. Delicas or Aikos
  • Size 15 beads
  • 4mm bicone crystals
  • Needle and thread of choice

This project was published in the October 2012 issue of Beads & Beyond magazine.
