From designs to creating beautiful pieces of jewellery with Swarovski beads, one can find plenty of help. Swarovski beads are expensive and precious and therefore they are perfect for making not just bracelets and necklaces but pendants as well.
While purchasing Swarovski beads one must be careful that they are purchasing real Swarovski beads and not cheap knockoffs. There are few common clues that can help you determine if you have purchased actual Swarovski beads. For instance, Swarovski beads have a high lead content. Thus they usually have some weight and are not as light as ordinary glass beads. Also Swarovski beads are absolutely crystal clear without any impurities. If you can see impurities in the bead with your naked eye, the bead is a fake Swarovski and definitely not a real one. Also Swarovski beads are always machine cut so their edges are uniform and beads of the same kind are always identical in nature.
