We all love a bit of sparkle every now and then and diamante beads are the perfect way of incorporating our adoration for all things shiny into any design. Crystal diamantes are set into each bead, allowing the light to play and dance across the surface and breathing new life to your usual materials. They are incredibly easy to work with and can be strung alongside your favourite materials in bracelets, necklaces, earrings and just about any project you can imagine!
As they offer such a high impact appearance it is rather rewarding to let these beads become the focal point of a piece such as the feature in a beaded bracelet or as simple drop earrings. You can even use these beads with Shamballa cord for a cheaper alternative to the popular Shamballa style bracelets. Why not try using the diamante rondelles as a spacer beads between your usual beads for a hint of sparkle or to break up a block colour design? We love the effect of these rondelles with dark semi-precious stones such as hematite, the diamante crystals illuminating the stones in such a beautiful way. Diamante beads can be used in a range of projects and designs as well as necklaces, earrings and bracelets. These beads are a firm favourite for tiara makers, adding an extra splash of glitz and glamour to those special occasions.
