The Rivoli Daisy by moonlight!

Although I have been enjoying working on the Midnight Garden for the last 6 months, most of that time has been taken up with some quite intense designing with a lot of head scratching and unpicking involved.  So I thought it might be nice to give myself a break and incorporate a few of my existing designs into the garden - worked in the right colour of course!     I decided to follow one of my own patterns and started off with the Rivoli Daisy bracelet using some gorgeous Swarovski Rivolis in Vitrail Light.





It just goes to show how swapping the colours around can make a real difference to the finished piece.  The next picture shows the original design and both bracelets are made by following the same Rivoli Daisy bracelet pattern!




I am pleased with the end result of the new bracelet and I can certainly picture a delicate fairy wearing this creation as she dances round our enchanted garden.   Imagine the moonbeams glancing off the Rivolis as she twists and turns her wrists, making the whole bracelet flash like fairy lights across the night sky ...

  5. I've just finished this bracelet in the original colourway. It's been MUCH admired, and no-one can believe that I made it! I used a bright orange ribbon to tie it, and it feels really comfortable on. Although I didn't buy enough beads at the time, I think I might make a single flower as a pendant and another as a ring. Thank you for a WONDERFUL pattern, which is really easy to follow, and has loads of diagrams and pictures to help.....utterly brilliant!
