I love the Swarovski round faceted crystal beads and all the different sizes they come in. They allowed me to make this birthstone bracelet that acomodates a husband, wife, 6 children, 12 grands, and two greats. And these beads don't pinch the wrist like the bi-cones do.
These beads are exactly the quality you'd expect with the Swarovski name. Brilliantly faceted and rich in color. I particularly love the round beads for their softer look (as opposed to the bicones).
