Jewelry Making Tip
Swarovski Vs. 'Regular' Glass Beads When creating your first beading/jewelry project, you might have to decide between using Swarovski Crystals or Glass Beads. Swaroski Crystals have an elegance and majesty of fine European design with a refined feel of beauty known across the globe. Its trademark and reputation are world class and well-known. Glass beads offer a unique appearance and personal appeal. They can be mass-produced or individually made by a lampwork bead artist. One of the great things about beading is the fun and excitement of selecting your own beads. You’ll come across an infinite amount of choices which will inevitably come down to one thing … what your overall feel of the piece should be.
