Work in tubular peyote stitch (Basics) to make a bezel for the stone following the same method as a rivoli bezel (Basics). Work a total of three rounds of cylinder beads, insert the stone, and work two rounds with 15U seed beads on each side of it.

Do not end the working thread or tail.

[2] On the front of the stone, work one round of tubular peyote stitch with 15* Charlottes.

[2] Work one round of tubular peyote stitch with cylinders, and step up (figure 1, a-b).

[3] The 15* Charlottes picked up in the initial ring indicate where the decreases that will form the corners need to go.

Repeat to complete the round, working as many 15° seed bead stitches as needed to reach each corner, and step up through the first 15" seed bead added (d-e).

Work a stitch with a 15° seed bead (f-g), work two cylinder stitches (g-h), work three stitches with a 15° seed bead in each stitch (h-i), and work a cylinder stitch (i-j). Repeat to complete the round (j-k).

[3] Pick up three 15° Charlottes, and sew through the next cylinder to form a picot. Pick up three 15® Charlottes, and sew through the next cylinder along the edge to form a picot pointing in the opposite direction (photo c). Repeat twice to form a total of six picots.
