Embrace Your Creativity with Swarovski Crystal Beads Challenges

Are you struggling to come up with new and unique ways to use Swarovski crystal beads? If so, you might want to take part in a crystal bead challenge.

There are a lot of Swarovski crystal bead challenges you can partake in, and they’re all designed to give you inspiration and get those creative juices flowing. You can complete challenges at your own pace, and they add an element of fun into your existing projects. Here, you’ll discover some great Swarovski crystal beads challenge ideas you can start today.

Themed challenges

The easiest Swarovski crystal beads challenge you can try out are those which require you to follow a certain theme. You’ll find ready made themed challenges online, usually surrounding special events and occasions such as Valentine’s Day challenges. However, you can also easily create your own themed challenge.

Simply come up with a theme, whether it be a special occasion or destination. Then, aim to create something which matches that theme. Having a theme to follow makes it easier to kickstart your creativity and it also adds a fun element as you try and stick within the guidelines.

Product challenges

As well as themes, you can partake in product challenges. In these challenges, you have 30 days to create a specific product. It could be a pair of earrings, an elegant bracelet or a stand-out necklace. Selecting a product challenge, rather than a theme, doesn’t present you with as many restrictions in terms of design. So, you’ll have literally hundreds of ways to create the product, making full use of your imagination.

Colour challenges

Alternatively, you could opt to take part in colour challenges. With this one, you have to stick with working with specific coloured Swarovski crystal beads. It’s a lot more difficult than it sounds, as it does limit the designs you can create. However, it’s great for those who really want to challenge themselves.

When you’re creating crystal-based crafts on a regular basis, it’s common to get stuck not knowing what to create next.
