Swarovski Crystal Beads are the Kings of Bling!
Crystals are formed by a very slow and controlled heat reduction process. Elements, or chemicals used during the process, as opposed to dies, dictate the color. Different chemicals absorb different wavelengths of visible light. The result? We see the opposite of this color. For example, if the chemical added absorbed blue, we would see an orange crystal.
Interestingly enough, manufacturing a clear crystal is much more difficult than adding color. There can be no impurities during the manufacturing process as even a small contamination could change the clarity of the crystal.
Check out all the colors we have in stock in rhinestones, beads and other embellishments in the Components Folder.
P.S. If you are looking for the Crystal Christmas Earrings Kits we moved them to the Kits & Patterns folder. Look in the menu bar on the left hand side of the front page, about 3/4 of the way down. And, Pendants have their own home now, check in the Swarovski main menu.
