My name is Cynthia Kimura. As the president and co-owner of Artbeads.com, I have enjoyed jewelry making for the past 12 years. For as long as I have been doing this, I still find myself working Swarovski crystals into many of my designs. I love that they are available in a variety of different colors and shapes, each with endless amounts of sparkle, which are great to incorporate with other beads. If I could, I would put flatbacks on everything! A lot of the larger Swarovski pendants are so elegant they can be strung alone on a ribbon or chain to make lovely necklaces. You can find my handpicked favorite Swarovski items below.
