Swarovski is the brand name for a range of precisely cut crystal and related luxury products. The Swarovski company was founded in 1895 in Austria and its current logo of a swan is well known. The Swarovski range includes jewelry and couture, home decor and chandeliers, but probably Swarovski is most known for its sculptures and miniatures which are collected world wide. One such example is the small black sheep known as Shady, pictured above, which I am lucky enough to own.
There is a subsidiary of the main Swarovski company know as Swarovski Elements and it is this subsidiary that it just as renowned as the parent company amongst jewellery makers, because it makes a huge range of crystal beads and pendants in an amazing variety of colours. These crystals are great favourites with jewellery designers because of their high quality and huge range.
One of my pieces that incorporates Swarovski Crystal beads is my Fuchsia Crystal and Sterling Diamond Necklace
