About Swarovski Crystal Bicone Beads

Perhaps it’s the staple sparkle that never goes out of fashion; the unrivalled versatility, or maybe it’s the broad range of colours and sizes available that make the Swarovski bicone beads the most popular shape of all Swarovski Elements at The Bead Shop.

The Bead Shop’s Swarovski Bicone beads are split by size into 2.5mm to 10mm and there are different colours available in each size range.

For example, the 3 mm line provides colours including Crystal, Antique pink and denim blue and our 10 mm variety is made up of jet, emerald and aquamarine.

Take your time to browse through the Bead Shop’s collection to find exactly what you want or even just to get some inspiration for your existing design.

Different Ways To Use Crystal Beads

To demonstrate the versatility of bicone beads see below just some of the ways in which you can use them:

  • Swarovski Bicone Beads have become more and more popular in the making of all kinds of wedding apparel; including tiaras, veils, wedding dresses and jewellery.
  • Kumihimo designs also welcome the use of Swarovski bicone beads as they can work well with other popular beads used in Kumihimo pieces, for example, Czech seed beads.
  • Use them on their own to create a set of sparkly earrings; in combination with Swarovski Pearls or alongside other, different coloured bicone beads. Whatever colour or style combination you choose you won’t be disappointed as bicone beads are so flexible.
