We used beads made by an Austrian company that has been the leading manufacture of crystals since 1892 when Daniel Swarovski created the automatic cutting machine for crystals.  These crystals contain 30-32% lead, depending on the color, and produce a highly refractive quality.

Many other companies create lead crystal beads but the quality in Swarovski is unmistakable and their brilliance is truly unmatched.   When the beads are placed side by side the Swarovski crystal bead stands out beside it's competitor's bead every time.

For this reason, we used a wide range of Swarovski crystal beads in our jewelry designs. You will find a wide range of bead third-party coatings that change the color, add shimmer, or metallic effects.
