A beaded kitty pendant. For those of you familiar with beading a bezel around a rivoli crystal, this is easy (and fun!) to do.
Because this is quite a basic piece, I have not written any instructions. I saw a picture like this on Pinterest and decided to make one. It is not difficult to figure out just from looking at the photos. So this is going to be a very short and sweet post. Meow!

- Swarovski Rivoli Crystal, 12mm, Sunflower
- Galvanised Silver seed beads
- .925 Sterling Silver bail
- .925 Sterling Silver snake chain (16 inches)
- .925 Sterling Silver wire guard
A modification note: The picture I saw of a similar kitty had beads at the top to act as bail. I never did like that approach much. To me, it never quite looks as finished as with metal findings.
So for this little kitty pendant, I worked in a Sterling Silver wire guard right into the pendant itself. And I included a closed proper necklace .925 bail before I closed off the wire guard connection.
The rivoli kitty pendant is strung on 16inch smooth Sterling Silver chain. This way, it rests nicely in the sexy hollow on the neck. 😀
As always, keep enjoying your own craftiness!
