Until this week, I had only used the Swarovski rivoli button and the square button.
I now have two 3014 12mm Crystal AB Faceted Buttons that I recently selected from the Swarovski crystal beads inventory at Artbeads.com.
Something that I have discovered in the last couple of months is that Swarovski buttons make the perfect base for a sparkly crystal ring using Crystallized Swarovski components.
A recently discovered idol of mine, Lillian Chen, is an amazing wire and Swarovski crystal bead artist. I have learned so much about creating with crystals from studying her work. I felt my first attempt at making a piece inspired by her was a success and wanted to try again using this 12mm round crystal AB faceted button as a ring base this time around.
I finished my ring project today and was very tempted to post it now, but I wanted to wait until I have the coordinating necklace completed as well.
I am having a great time as I continue with my Swarovski crystal extravaganza week! Hope you are all having a great week too!!
