You can add loose stones to designs in unique ways by creating a backless peyote-stitch bezel. These bezels can be created in coordinating colors to make the stones truly stand out in designs. The small seed beads of the bezel make it easier to stitch the stones into designs. This technique is a great way to enhance the popular Swarovski Rivoli stone, which is what we'll be using in this tutorial.
