Swarovski Elements from Artbeads.com

Artbeads.com has a whole assortment of different Swarovski Crystal elements that you can purchase for jewelry designs. I had the opportunity to try out a few of these this past couple of weeks. The first piece, in the picture above, I used the Swarovski Crystal pearls in a pale sage green color. These worked really well in this piece, and matched perfectly to some cream color glass pearls that I had on hand. The pearls are really nice, they have a good color, are weighty, and have a nice evenly smooth surface.


This second piece, I wire wrapped some of their Swarovski Crystal rounds in a beautifully and rich Caribbean Blue Opal color. These paired perfectly with the ceramic bezel piece I created this past weekend. I also used one of Sue's lampwork beads in the same color tone.
Artbeads also carries cool crystal encrusted yarn and suede, which I am looking forward to trying out. The the pearls and crystals that I used above, I also ordered some pretty Faceted crystal rings, and some Deep orange crystal flowers. Look for these in designs coming soon!

Artbeads.com has sent me these products to review on my blog and I have not been paid for my endorsement of this product as it pertains to the products received.

  5. I am trying to hold back and not fall in love with another material, but you are making it difficult showing of these Swarovski elements.

  6. Love both but the bracelet is expectacular!!! reminds me of my Puerto Rican Island. It has the sky (ceramic bezel), the ocean (blue elements), our trees and vegetation (lampwork), our flowers and our warmth in the element that you choose to put everything together!!!!
