This is a set of instructions for building a wreath ornament with a captured rivoli crystal in the center. I made this after I had just learned the basic principles of capturing rivolis and wanted to practice to make sure I had learned it correctly. Christmas was coming up, so I sat down to make a bunch of ornaments and tried to figure out how to capture rivolis in them. This wreath was one of the results.

This tutorial assumes that you can weave Celtic Visions, or that you are at least familiar with it. If you don’t know this weave, there are free resources which can help you learn it. Chainmail 101 has a free tutorial, and also has plenty of resources.

This tutorial has been tested with anodized aluminum rings from The Ring Lord and Chainmail Joe. The center ring has been tested with rings from Metal Designz and The Ring Lord. For this wreath, rings from The Ring Lord tend to give a tighter weave than rings from Chainmail Joe. So, I indicate areas where you can make adjustments.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send me a message!!
