We haven’t had rivoli's on our design centre for a long time! Alicja Czapla decided to solve this and she prepared an earrings with crystals tutorial. She used NIB-BIT beads. Thanks to them you can make the earrings really quickly and even those of you who have just started their beading adventure should be able to make them without a problem. We hope you can find some spare time and make a pair for yourself. Let’s do this!

Supplies used in this project:

We hope you make plenty of colourful earrings that will be admired by your friends. Shall we begin?

If everything is prepared, let’s start playing.
