Beaded spikes dangle from each end of this luscious, long lariat. Sparkling rivolis, trapped in filigree netting which exposes the pretty edges of the crystals, are positioned at intervals along the lariat, connected by pretty, little peyote units. The Tsarina lariat is reversible because the rivolis used are those which have beautiful coloured foils on the reverse sides allowing you to bead and display both sides the same. Students will learn exciting techniques to set their crystals, secure the spikes and work the connecting units to build the lariat. Each component is individually adaptable for further beadwork.
