Crystal Sneak Peek
New Beads, Pendants and Components!

New Swarovski Elements crystal is almost here! And to make the wait a little easier, I am going to give you a sneak peek of the new Swarovski shapes!

Swarovski has done it again. They have created a beautiful new bead shape – the Stairway bead. This is a rectangular bead with linear facets on both sides. The facets go in opposite directions so when you look through it a chessboard effect is created. This linear faceting can be seen in other beads from previous collections including the Lucerna, Helix, Twist and Chessboard beads. With a center-drilled hole, this bead will be easy to incorporate into designs with different shapes.

Adding to their line of Cosmic Rings, Swarovski has added an Organic Cosmic Triangle. They are perfect to add into your organic inspired designs as well as your modern, edgy designs.

I love the new Space Cut Sew-on Stone. The name says it all – the cut is clean and modern. Though it is a sew-on stone, the large triangle shaped holes make this easy to incorporate into your jewelry. Unlike most sew-on stones, the Space Cut comes in colors without a foil back.

The Be Charmed beads are Swarovski’s addition to the large hole bead, charm bracelet craze. There are two cuts to choose from, the classic briolette and the helix. Both have a stainless steel core with a 4.5mm hole. Combine these beads into your existing charm bead bracelet or start a new one for that special someone.

Crazy 4 U, Devoted 2 U, Miss U, Forever 1, Truly in Love

I think my favorite part of the latest line is all of the new crystal heart pendants. These are part of Swarovski’s designer editions. Created in collaboration with designer, Manish Arora, the 5 new designs tell a beautiful love story of the heart. Each individual piece is an expression of one of love’s different emotional states and is named accordingly.

Crazy 4 U captures the intense feeling of new love in a modern heart. As love grows, the heart becomes Devoted 2 U. Sometimes we are not able to be with our loved ones. The empty heart-shaped hole shows that your love will always be in your heart as we Miss U. Two hearts are Forever 1. The two sides of the heart come together in the center with a matte line symbolizing togetherness. We all strive to be Truly in Love – to have that eternal, everlasting love.

The heart is a timeless symbol of love. It can be used in various jewelry pieces throughout the year. They also work beautifully in all wedding jewelry.

With all of these amazing new pieces, I hope you are as excited as I am to start designing.

Sparkle! – Lindsay

    I really like the large hole bead craze, so I am very pleased to see the addition of Swarovski’s Be Charmed bead line. But then I saw the photo of all the new heart beads!!! Five new creative shapes…all heart shapes! Even the names are creative! Crazy 4 U, Devoted 2 U, Truly in Love, Forever 1, and (my favorite!) Miss U! I predict that all these new heart beads will be very popular for jewelry making and I intend to also use them in my scrapbooking and quiltmaking and even collage work! I can hardly wait!!!

    new Swarovski heart beads – wonderful! Just love to create new jewelry with heart beads. Miss you and truly in love will make for great necklaces. Then, how clever on the stainless steel core large hole beads. The stainless gives them strength and doesn’t tarnish. This I can’t wait to add to my bracelet.

    Oh no! More hearts I won’t be able to resist. Forever 1 and Truly in Love look like my favourites.

    And finally – I never bought those pandora-type charms because I was waiting for the real Swarovskis!

  • Deborah S

    For myself, I can’t wait to make something with the Stairway beads, but I have several clients that asks for the crystal hearts so I’m glad to see all the new ones to play with. All the shapes are gorgeous. I want them all!

  • Evelyn

    Like the stairway bead; they are all funky looking and I would love to create with these new beads.

  • Adrienne Magee

    I am in love with the Crystal Bronze shade the most because it will go wonderfully with matrixed or veined stones like dyed howlite, turquoise – probably more than half of my stone stock. The heart shapes make my hed spin with possibilities! The Crystal Vintage pearls will go with some of my older Swarovski Crystal Pearls to make my signature Victorian themed necklaces and bracelets and again my head spins because they also go lovely with the new Crystal Bronze shade crystals! So glad I got this preview – I won’t be able to sleep with all these ideas!!


    You cannot pick one favorite they are all so beautiful. Although I can say the new stairway bead is absolutly stunning! I Want them!!!

  • Bonnie Williams

    I forgot! The sew on button…. I have another image in my mind for the future of this new crystal!

  • Lynn Bolles

    I love, love, love the to be charmed beads! They are different from anything I have seen before. I think they would make beautiful mommy or grandma bracelets!

  • Iris A

    The Stairway Swarovski will be so beautiful in multipe applications but my favorite is the Space Cut Sew-on-Stone.Can’t wait to see the colors available.I’m sketching out the design I’ll use already.The ethereal color of the chrysolite opal is mesmerizing.It reminds me of the beauty of glacial ice.
