Smiles, but no Sparkles?

What is this?  How could it be?  No sparkles?

Well, sometimes sparkles are just a bit too much....and instead we can opt for glow!

Yes, I'm talking about the glow of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Crystal Pearls.  I love the warm glow of all the Crystal Pearl colors, and how they add an elegance to everything I make with them.

I was honored recently to have one of my SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS projects on the cover of Bead & Button magazine, and the response has been extraordinary.  BIG smiles worthy!!  The pear-shaped pearls (Article 5821) are among my favorites, although  of course, I continue to "play" with other shapes.  My collection of 3mm round colors grows every day.

Because one is never enough when it comes to Swarovski jewelry...I've made up a variety of new kits for the "Dome of Pearls" (also known as Contessa pendant).  You can take a look at them in my Etsy store: DianeWhitingDesigns

I've been playing with the Baroque shape (Article 5840)  recently also.  It was love at first sight for me and now I'm working on a few new projects, they are a natural for designing with some new filigrees.  Nothing to share yet...but soon.

So, how about you, are you ready to GLOW!  Add some SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS pearls to your designs and you will be smiling too!
