Lunar Lights Bracelet
Brilliant and sparkling like moon beams, each lunar bead is created using a Swarovski crystal Rivoli which gives this bracelet a dynamic presence. This bracelet was inspired by the beauty of Rivolis and my love for right angle weave. I absolutely love the intricate work that can be done with this stitch and Lunar Lights showcases it beautifully. The bezel of the bracelet uses a graduated size to create a snug home for the Rivoli faceted stone. The embellishments are added to the bezel using Chevron Chain stitch and picots which give it an added sweetness. The back of the Rivoli is protected with a circular three-dimensional casing. The connections between each lunar bead forms the band. The nylon snap clasp is hidden beneath a Rivoli.
Skill Level: Prior knowledge of right angle weave and peyote is necessary for this piece. Although new techniques are covered in the pattern, they are easily learned from clear and concise instructions.
