I wanted to make something fresh and fruity for spring and summer. These Rivoli colors just pop against the shining gold necklace!
Stunning style that will make a splash is easy to achieve with Swarovski Rivolis They fit perfectly into the cup chain settings on this finished necklace. Learn how to make this necklace to create a piece that's ready to wear in minutes. You can find more inspiration for using Rivoli rhinestones in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Place a Swarovski 12mm Rivoli in Crystal Light Coral Shiny into the first setting of the bright gold empty cup chain rolo necklace. Make sure the stone is sitting flush in the setting and then use chain nose or flat nose pliers to push prongs closed over the stone. You'll want to start by partially pushing one prong, then partially pushing the opposing prong. Then, do the same with the remaining two prongs. Go back and tighten the prongs so that they are not raised at the tips or they will snag. Do not squeeze too tight or you may crack or chip the crystal.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
