Return to the list of beAd Infinitum workshops at the Bead&Button Show 2012.

The “Rivoli Urchin” beaded pendant showcases a sparkling rivoli with eight arms or ridges of ornate seed bead work over a cluster of larger beads. The detailed bead weaving includes circular peyote stitch and a stitch that lies on the border between Ndebele herringbone and square stitches. The symmetric cluster resembles a sea urchin skeleton or perhaps a long-legged starfish that is tightly clutching a rock. The spider-web back provides structure and serves as a bail for stringing a chain or thick cord. The seed bead work on the rest of the necklace matches the ridges on the urchin in both style and technique. With a combination of these techniques you could make several urchins to use as components in a more elaborate necklace or bracelet.
