Stitch a stunning beaded jewellery set using crystal ovals, crystal pearls and seed beads, for jewellery that is truly fit for royalty.
The tutorial will guide you through how to embellish a basic right angle weave bezel. The finished piece is a versatile component that works equally well as a brooch, large pendant or cuff. You can also use smaller ovals and the same technique for regal statement earrings!
The beautiful jewel colours of the crystal stones are set off perfectly with silver, gold or bronze seed beads, but experiment with colours of your own choice.
