DIY Beaded Rivoli ‘Star Beam’ Pendant / Decor Tutorial


Hey beautiful! In today’s video I will show you how to make this fun beaded star pattern. The name is “Star Beam” because it is referring to the inclusion of Czech glass three hole Beam beads. This design was inspired by the Magic Forest Collection from Eureka Crystal Beads. Even if the collection is out of stock, or no longer available, you can still find everything you need at Eureka Crystal Beads, in a wide variety of colors. Use this piece as a pendant, or hang it up as decor, and show off the sparkly center crystal rivoli. Please see below for the full list of materials, and links to the specific products. Thanks for watching!

Here is another colorway made with a combination of purple and pink. I think this would make adorable room decor for a little girl to hang on a door, or window, for example. It’s pretty enough for a princess!
