However, postal services around the World are greatly affected at the moment (items which previously took 3-5 days are now taking up to 12 weeks though thankfully are usually a lot sooner) and so shipping may (or may not) be a lot longer than expected so I appreciate your patience at this time.

This 167 page book is crammed full of Rivoli beadwork using the sparkling, round, crystal cabochons much loved in the beading world.

Featuring over 75 projects and variations (plus over a hundred more project variations & ideas) there is something for everyone. The projects range from small to large and cover earrings, bracelets, pendants, necklaces and even a beaded needle case cover and a scarf ring!

The book begins with the basics of Rivoli bezelling (showing all of the materials, techniques, tips & information you need to get started).

It then separates into 5 different chapters:

  • Seed Beads
  • Pearls
  • Geometric
  • Extra Sparkle (the best accompaniment for crystals is of course... more crystals!)
  • Shaped Beads (don't worry, I used just 2 different shapes and never more than 1 shape per project)

Each chapter has multiple projects along with any necessary technique instructions specific to that area of beadwork.

In addition to lots of full-page photos (so you can see all the detail) every project lists: the quantity and size of beads you will need, the colours used, the techniques needed, variation ideas and detailed step-by-step instructions using a mix of text, diagrams and photos.

The book is now for sale as a signed-copy direct from me (simply add to cart below) or through Amazon so please choose your nearest venue:
