Swarovski (‘Swore Off Ski’) Crystals and Pearls are made in Austria. A privately family owned business since 1895 by Daniel Swarovski and developed throughout the years by his three sons.It is renowned worldwide for manufacturing crystal products of precision, in different shapes, forms, and sizes, that represent the best in cut, clarity, and brillance!!
The symbol of the Swan represents Swarovski. Most famous for chandeliers, binoculars, sunglasses, figurines and collectables, jewelry, facuets, knobs for doors and cabinets, key chains, clocks, paper weights, and even perfume bottles!

I love working with these crystals and pearls! Some crystals like the alexandrite appears in different colours depending which light is in under. Sunlight and incandescent light it turns violet, under fluorescent it is blue. Another one is Cantelope, that can change from a peach to a light green.


The Pearls have a crystal core, and are made with layers of mother of pearl. They feel heavy like real pearls, are resistant to fading, scratching, uv light, perfume and perspiration. I love the consistency of each pearl, and the colour varieties of both pearls and crystals! Interested in making a Swarovski Pearl Necklace or Bracelet? I have many colours to choose from!Colour of Pearls:
Black Pearl, Bright Gold Pearl, Bronze Pearl, Brown Pearl, Burgundy Pearl, Copper Pearl, Cream Pearl, Creamrose Light Pearl, Creamrose Pearl, Dark Green Pearl, Dark Grey Pearl, Dark Purple Pearl, Gold Pearl, Light Blue Pearl, Light Green Pearl, Light Grey Pearl, Maroon Pearl, Mauve Pearl , Mystic Black Pearl, Night Blue Pearl ,Peach Pearl, Powder Almond Pearl, Powder Rose Pearl, Rosaline Pearl,Tahitian-look Pearl, and White Pearl. Currently, I carry all, but Powder Rose and Burgundy, in 4mm, 6mm, and 8mm.

Here is a picture of a custom bridal necklace, I recently did. The inner strand remained untouch (as it was previously stranded professionally). I was asked to use her grandmother’s pearls, and the bride has peach in her dress, so she wanted to include peach pearls in the necklace and make it victorian like. The bride, the mother of the bride, and myself are very pleased how it turned out!
