3 Uses for Swarovski Crystal Beads

Swarovski crystal beads have a wide range of uses. Featuring a breathtaking sparkling design, they’re created to an exemplary standard and are guaranteed to last. Most commonly used in jewellery creation, these beads are available in both small and large packs to suit your project.

If you’re looking for a little inspiration on how to use these impressive beads, below you’ll discover 3 great ideas.

  1. Crystal Bead Tennis Bracelet

Tennis style bracelets have always been popular, and they’re surprisingly easy to make, too. You can create a simple yet beautiful tennis bracelet using Swarovski crystal beads. For maximum sparkle, it’s recommended you use clear Swarovski AB finish crystals.

You'll find a tutorial for a simple beginner tennis bracelet here. You should find it quick and easy to make, and you’ll be left with a stylish piece of jewellery to add to your collection.

  1. Swarovski Elements Necklace

If you’re looking for something a little trickier and more elegant, a Swarovski Elements necklace is the right project for you. You will need basic wire skills, but besides that, it should be pretty straightforward.

You can create a wide range of Swarovski Element necklaces. However, if you’re just starting out, it’s recommended you follow this design provided by Swarovski. You’ll end up with a beautiful drop pendant necklace you’ll want to wear time and time again.

  1. Crystal Ornament

Swarovski crystal beads aren’t just great for jewellery making, they can also be used in many other ways. Creating crystal ornaments is a unique way to put these beautiful crystals to use.

Most tutorials you’ll find online relate to Swarovski Christmas ornaments. However, you could still use these designs for year-round ornaments, as many don’t feature an overly Christmassy theme. You’ll find a lot of ideas on sites such as Pinterest or YouTube. Not only can you use these crystal ornaments yourself, but you could also choose to sell them off.

Remember, when you’re following tutorials, you don’t have to use the same coloured beads as the ones featured. There are a substantial amount of Swarovski crystal beads on offer, so you can choose the ones which match your own personal preferences.
