Allie’s Favorite Things!

It’s that time for me to pick my favorite things! As a Jewelry Designer here at I get to use a lot of amazing beads and other fun products! From sparkling Swarovski Crystal beads and components to beading techniques, there’s always something to obsess over! I’ve decided to list the things that first come to mind when I think about beading, otherwise I might get a little carried away! Let’s take a peek at just a few of the things I’ve fallen in love with throughout the years!

I’m absolutely in love with the 27×18.5mm Emerald Swarovski Elements Crystal Octagon Shaped Stone! This stone has such amazing color! I love how it looks when paired with gold!

Since the launch of the Swarovski Elements Crystal Gemcolor Pearls I have been addicted! All of  these crystal pearls are so pretty and look amazing alone or in combination with any of the other gemcolor pearls!

I’m definitely a sucker for Swarovski Elements! One of my favorite pendants of all time would have to be the 24mm Crystal Bermuda Blue Swarovski Elements Crystal Teardrop Pendant. In this particular pendant the color is truly amazing! Every time I wear it I get tons of compliments!

One of my favorite beading techniques would have to be the Woven Beaded Bead Technique! They’re  so much fun and they always make a statement in any necklace, bracelet or earring designs!

Another technique that I enjoy would be the Wire Wrapped Ring – Messy Wrap Technique! You can use so many different shapes, colors of beads and different metals to really make these rings unique!

When we added our line of feathers I was thrilled! All of the styles can be incorporated into so many different types of jewelry designs and other fun accessories! I love to make fabric flowers and accent them with feathers and buttons, my favorites are definitely all of our cute Pin Up Buttons! Connect a hair clip and it’s a great way to add some style to your hairdo!

Those are just a handful of my favorite things, if you’d like to see some of my other favorite products, click here to see my Staff Picks page!
