A couple of people commented on yesterday's post about taking their handmade jewelry apart to repurpose it. I do enjoy taking apart something with Swarovski crystals in it.
It's great to clean them up and feel like you've got a new batch of materials to work with. I usually immerse all glass beads in dishwashing liquid, rinse and let air dry before reusing them.
I just did a search to find out how to clean crystals and found this video on wiki-how. Thought you might enjoy it! :)
