Swarovski Crystal Beads
crystals you will love

What is Swarovski Crystal and Swarovski crystal beads? Since young, I have always been fascinated by these lovely crystals.

I was first introduced to the sparkling world of lovely crystals when I found a crystal drop while walking home from school. It was actually part of a bigger crystal ornament.

Then when I grew up, I discovered and fall in love with those beautiful Swarovski Crystal figurines and collectibles. I love these crystal figurines especially when the lights shine on them and bounced off those lovely colors of the rainbow. It was indeed a beautiful sight to behold.

Since taking up jewelry making, I have been using Swarovski crystal beads for making my own jewelry. I like its precise cutting which enable me to create a pair of identical earrings quickly. I also use these crystal beads a lot for highlighting my gemstone jewelry.

Most crystals have sharp drill holes and can chip easily.

A Brief History

Swarovski Crystal was a company founded by Daniel Sworovski with his brother-in-law, Franz Weis and with Armand Kosmann in 1895.

Daniel Swarovski was borned in 1862 in Bohemia, a country where glass and crystal was manufactured. His father was a crystal cutter and owned a small factory.

From young, Daniel Swarovski was familiar with crystal cutting, having learned from his father and later with other crystal cutters.

In 1883, he attended the First Electrial Exhibition held in Vienna and was inspired to build a machine for cutting crystal.

After 9 years of work and research, he finally invented the machine.

With his invention, he made it possible to precisely cut crystal to perfection.

And that is why with these crystals, we can find exact replica of crystal beads to work with. And this is especially great for making earrings and other jewelry pieces that need look alike beads that are of the same size and color.
