A seed bead Rivet

Beads in Motion is the challenge I arranged for myself....the next book will feature beadwork which in one way or another moves.

I wanted to sandwich discs of beadwork together but allow them to spin freely around their core.

The metal girls of course do this with rivets, so I designed one using a bezeled rivoli, a peyote tube and a ladder stitch medallion. It works beautifully.
