Me at the Swarovski Crystal Store In Vienna, Austria.
I Love crystals: Looking at them, stringing them, beading with them, designing for them and wearing them. During the summer, I troll the Streets of Philadelphia in search of house sales with troves of beads for sale. While I have snapped up caches of old jewelry made of old Swarovskis and other glimmering crystals for a song, I am not above buying new crystals because Swarovski is constantly coming out with new styles and colors.
I have project article in the January/February 2008 issue of Step by Step Beads called “Tokyo Rows.” It’s a bracelet made from the traditional Japanese flower motif using seed beads and crystals. Check it out.
Here are some of my favorite crystal beading web sites:
