Swarovski crystals are very popular in handmade jewelry. They are much less expensive than diamonds but nevertheless they make very beautiful jewelry pieces. Swarovski crystals can be used together with other beads or simply be the star in the jewelry created.
For necklaces, the Swarovski crystals are often times used as pendants. In my search for various designs that can use Swarovski crystals, I have found one tutorial that shows how a very nice heart pendant can be made with the use of Swarovski crystals.
This Beaded Heart that can be used as a pendant consists of 74 pcs bicone crystals. You’ll find the tutorial as a FREE DOWNLOAD at DiyLessons.org
Now, what an elegant piece – a necklace set with Swarovski Elements Crystals from i-Beads
The design actually looks so fancy but it is really very easy to make. The Swarovski Elements are glued onto a Flat Felt Sheet. You’ll be amazed how i-Beads created the pendant with this tutorial.
These Swarovski crystals are not only pretty as necklace pendants. The Swarovski crystals can compose the necklace itself.
You’ll find in this tutorial that the Swarovski crystals are used in the necklace itself instead of just as pendants.
