Sparkly Swarovski Flower Pendant

Everything's coming up swarovski crystal beads!! How fun would it be to line your flowerbeds with swarovski sparkle!?

I'm very excited about the jewelry I am working on with all of this week's beads from Artbeads.com. I've got some serious bling here! :)

Today's bead is a swarovski 14mm peridot flower pendant.

One of the many thoughts I had today involved using the bright gold chain in a bracelet cuff as the outer rows and weaving gold wire through the links with the filigree flowers and butterflies "floating" in between.

I have also seen some great ideas in the comments this week such as creating a multi strand necklace with dangles and filigree earrings.

As I mentioned earlier in the week, photos just don't do these beads justice. The clarity and sparkle are AMAZING! The green is so springy (not to mention St. Patricky). I think it's time to CREATE!

The beads this week are great! I'm anxious to see your finished designs.

Congratulations on being featured!

Only a couple more days till it's officially spring, on the calendar anyway! It's supposed to be 68 here tomorrow and then snow Saturday & Sunday. Oh, Kansas in the spring!

Hey...you don't have to convince me Lisa...I love Swarovski crystals...there really isn't anything else to compare! :0) While green isn't a favorite color I've developed a liking for it since I started working with beads/silver...

Cheers

The Swarovski flowers are gorgeous! I too love all things Swarovski. The crystal spacers are particular favorites of mine. I use them in my new faux pearl necklace designs.
