just recently bought a Swarovski book. these "starburst" bracelets were featured. I've never made something so expensive before. :)
four 12mm rivolis and one 18 mm rivoli. 17 crystals around each one, two layers, except for the middle burst which has 3 layers. and, of course, delicas. This bracelet looks exquisite on, the pic doesn't do it justice.
Noel......................oooooooh my, sparkle aplenty and I love it. You have a ton of patience and good workmanship skills........congrats on a spectacular project. Mmmmmm. Donna, drooling
WOW! That really is pretty! and I bet it does look sparkly on the arm! Great job!
That is just gorgeous! And I love the colors!
Oh my, Noel, the bracelet is exquisite! That must have been very complex. If you have any plans to sell it, I would start at around $100. Swarovski don't come cheap!
thanks all! now to find the outfit to wear it with! :)

This is just stunning. Simply stunning.
HOLY WOW!!!!!!!! That is GORGEOUS!!!!
Rivolis are just gorgeous and this is stunning.
Christina is right, rivoli's are beautiful. I read a lot of blogs and posts and anything I run across regarding beading. So many of the things I've read have remarked upon rivoli's, saying that they're no longer the 'thing' and they're past history. I say "Not so". I love them. I continue to buy them, and continue to use them. The only thing that dictates my use of them, is my wallet. And truth be told, on more then one occasion I've decided too bad on the cost, I want them anyway. This can sometimes get out of hand..........
I'm going to keep buying them, keep using them and keep loving them. I hope we all do the same.
Wow, people think rivolis are "out?" Nobody told me this! Those messy wrap hoop earrings I displayed earlier this year? Rivolis. My sister adores them and wears them frequently because they're so light. I adore them because of the brilliante cut. Imho, the clear ones look so much like a diamond, how can you resist? I actually squeal with beaded geeker joy when someone has Swarovski rivolis on sale, and I have to go get me some! Then my brain whirls endlessly with ideas on how to use them. Sometimes it takes awhile because I like to hoard my precioussssss.(lol)
I'm totally with you on this. Rivolis are elegant, they are classic, and they never go out of style. So take that, you trendanistas!
* sparkle sparkle sparkle sparkle* That bracelet made my eyes go sparkle see *.*
Rivolis are never out.. whether in bracelets or on necklaces or as charms.. They are always in (i bought a dozen yesterday)
