Favorite Swarovski Bead! - Comment to Win

Have you ever met a swarovski crystal that you didn't like? I would have to say that has never happened to me!

In fact, I would have to say I like them all and there are PLENTY to choose from. I highly doubt that I have even seen all the different swarovski beads and elements that are out there in the world!

Sometimes when I come across a smaller bicone, I don't get excited right away, however, when that happens all I have to do is take them closer to a window, outside or in flourescent light. My goodness, even the tiniest little bead can overcome you with sparkliness!

Now imagine a swarovski prism that is 40mm! I would have to say the swarovski sun prism takes this award for me! Here's a link to a project I made with this prism and a bicone mix called the watermelon crawl from Rings & Things a couple years ago!

I would LOVE to hear from all of you about your favorite swarovski bead or crystal element! From now until Saturday, please leave a comment with the swarovski name or a link to enter this little contest to win a fabulously special Swarovski crystal.

I love Swarovski buttons, I like to use them as bracelet clasps

Courtney said...

My problem is that I love them all!!! I am probably most taken with bicones - so versatile and all those colors!!!! Love that sparkle.

Mandy said...

The xillion! I love the sparkle!

Deci said...

I use 14mm rivolis and 4mm bicones in bead embroidery. I would rather have Swarovski than diamonds, more bling!

Although they all are beautiful, I love the clean lines and simplicity of the cubes.

Mary K. McGraw said...

I am especially dong of bicones, but do like rivolis also.

I wish we could include photos in the comments - my favorite Swarovski crystal pendant of late has been the Navette. I've created with the black and the red. I'm posting a photo of "The Dream" on my blog - one of my faves! www.babblebead.blogspot.com

I love working with Swarovski elements. It's hard to pick but I love the cosmic oval or ring. They add so much to anything I design and make.

I have a 40mm crystal spear that I made into a pendant. It always catches the light when I'm driving and throws rainbows all over my car. Out of all the Swarovski crystals the big spears are my favorite.

I can't pick a favorite shape but I think my favoritie color is Fire Opal AB2X. Gorgeous pink, yellow and orange sparkle!

I use a number of 3-4mm bicones to add sparkle to my somewhat industrial looking body adornment, but my all time favorite I believe is called a "cushion cut". I've had a small clear one for over 30 years and haven't come across a new one since. I would love a new piece, but I will treasure the chipped one for as long as I can hold on to it!

My absolute favorite Swarovski is a 4mm Siam

I swoon, even at that size. I love substituting it for Ruby red (I'm a July baby).

Good luck everyone!

It's hard to say as they are so fabulous. I do use alot of 5 & 6mm bicones. I love the purples and the lavenders.

Thank you for a nice giveaway!

Mary C said...

I just made a pair of earrings with 10 mm Xilion and other size clear bicones and roundels. I really love the clear crystals the most I think, but I did just buy Caribbean Opal as they were speaking to me... oh but I love the Purple Velvet ones too!

Must Create said...

Gorgeous prism. Just discovered these and am supercharged over them.

Almost Precious said...

Swarovski crystals have to be the Royalty of all crystal - many have tried to duplicate them but none have been able to match the cut, clarity and quality of a true Swarovski crystal. I too love them ALL but the ones I tend to use the most are their bi-cones and their wonderful #5305 spacer (which is not easy to find).

Cindy Lietz, Polymer Clay Tutor said...

Oh gosh I love all the Swarovski Crystals! But the ones I long for most is the 40mm Cosmic Pendant Crystals. Especially in the Red Magma and Opal colors. I would love a big bag of those beauties!!

Maria Limperos said...
