swarovski crystal beadsBirthstones really personalize a gift don’t they?

Rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and diamonds are too expensive for the everyday beader, so what’s a girl to do?

I recommend using Swarovski Crystal beads in the birthstone colors instead.

(The above image shows an example of how I’ve used Swarovski crystal beads in birthstone colors to accentuate my Popo bracelet.)

Swarovski Crystal beads are considered to be the highest quality crystal beads in the world. The sparkle they give off is scrumptious.

I'm Christine Gierer and I'm obsessed with making jewelry and teaching others how to do it too. I've been a creative person all my life, and I've done all kinds of things like art, sociology, and counseling. But nothing makes me happier than playing with beads, wires, and tools and sharing my tips and tricks with you. I have two awesome websites where you can find tons of tutorials, courses, and workshops on how to make jewelry and how to sell it online.
