What is a bicone bead exactly? Well, as you might guess, it is quite literally a bi-cone! Two multi-faceted cones melded together to create one beautiful bead – called a bicone bead. Our genuine Swarovski bicones are set apart by their rich colour and tone, and by the beautiful precision used in their creation. This bicone design means extra sparkle and light-catching, which makes for simple but beautiful jewellery.
You can buy Swarovski bicone beads wholesale, or in small packs of 25, 50, etc. This is great for making your own jewellery, just as you can with our jewellery making kits. Check out our Bicone Crystal AB bracelet jewellery making kit, which uses silver plated findings and bicone beads in dazzling Crystal AB. With a simple fixture and a cluster of stunning bicone crystals along the bracelet, it’s a beautiful gift and a great project. (It comes with photographic instructions, so you don’t need to worry about getting it wrong.)
We also carry lots of earring jewellery kits, which are super popular when it comes to bicone beads. If you’re thinking of something Christmas-themed, for yourself or as gifts, we have designs with snowmen, stack of presents, angels, Santa, and Christmas trees. You can buy each design separately, or as a pack of five. The Santa Claus earrings come with both bicone beads and pearl beads (red and cream).
Feel like adding some sparkle to your plain jewellery? Purchase small packs of our bicone beads, or bead mixes, which come grouped by hue in a variety of shapes and sizes – like our Twilight mix of crystal beads and pendants. Each pack includes 50 pieces in twilight hues of small, shaped, and chunky gorgeous crystals. Then you can add to your necklace chain with a glitzy cluster, or a few tiny shapes for a subtle but dazzling effect. Check for the thread size of the bead, which varies from bead to bead (depending on its size too), against the thickness of your chain.
