1. On 1 1⁄2 yd. (1.4 m) of thread, pick up a 15/0 seed bead, a color B 3 mm bicone crystal, a 15/0, a B, a 15/0, a color C 3 mm bicone crystal, a 15/0, and a C. Sew through the first three beads to form a ring, leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail (figure 1).

2. Pick up three 15/0s, sew through the 15/0 your thread is exiting to form a picot, and continue through the next 3 mm and 15/0 (figure 2, a–b). Repeat this stitch two more times for a total of three picots (b–c), and then sew through the next B, 15/0, B, and three 15/0s to exit the center 15/0 in the second picot (figure 3). This completes one unit in the rivoli component, and you are now in position to start the next unit.

4. Repeat step 3 until you have a total of seven units, but for the last unit, do not add the picots.
