What are Swarovski bicones?

Swarovski bicones are one of the most popular collections of Swarovski beads you can buy. They’re available in more than 200 different colours and effects, giving you unlimited design options.

They feature small rounded holes for easy threading, and to enhance durability. The rounded holes reduce the amount of wear and tear placed upon the thread, guaranteeing a longer lasting finish.

How to use them in your soft furnishings

Swarovski bicones are largely used in jewellery creations. However, they can also be used to glam up your soft furnishings. This is because the holes featured in the beads enable you to either thread or sew them onto your projects. So, how exactly can they be used in soft furnishing designs?

You can use the beads to glam up a variety of soft furnishings, including cushion covers, throws, curtains and tablecloths. The sheer number of colour options available means you can create a huge variety of different styles. So whether you’re looking to create elegant soft furnishings, or more retro designs, you’ll find Swarovski bicones to match your design project.

To use them on your soft furnishings, you’ll need good quality thread and sewing equipment.  

Great design ideas

Now you know what Swarovski bicones are, and how they can be used to glam up soft furnishings, let’s take a brief look at some design ideas.

Transforming your cushion covers is probably one of the easiest ways to use Swarovski bicones in your soft furnishings. You’ll be working with a fairly small surface area, making them a great project for beginners. You can either use the beads along the edges of the cushion cover for a simple makeover, or create a more complex pattern in the centre of the cover.
