Swarovski is a worldwide brand whose reputation of style and quality certainly precedes it. Swarovski Crystal Bicone beads can look quintessentially antique, classically conventional or they can echo a more Haute Couture feel depending on how you choose to incorporate them.
Although sifting through beads is an enjoyable and relaxing experience it’s not always something everyone has time for. Our bead mixes have been hand-picked and purposefully put together to maximise the ease and pleasure of your bead shopping.
Our bicone bead range is available in various different sizes and colours from 3mm up to 6 mm, each with different sized threading holes. They are often chosen by those looking to create an intricate necklace or set of earrings or as a delicate embellishment on a bespoke craft project.
The Xillion Bicone Bead Vintage Gold mix is a flurry of toasted and tanned colours including shades of bronze, topaz and golden. Crystals, jets and silvers make up the diamond mix if you want something more monochrome. Choose from either 100 or 50 packs; all at reasonable prices.
If you have purchased your bead mix and any other beads you wish to go with your design then it’s time to think about the tools and equipment you will need to make your item of jewellery.
Have a look on the Bead Shop’s jewellery findings page to see a large range of different kinds of fastenings, jump rings, crimp covers and pendant bails.
If it is stringing material you are looking for then there is no shortage of silver plated craft wire and threading options available at The Bead Shop. Crystal bicone beads can be used with a range of different threads including Fireline beading thread and many other types of craft wire. Remember to check the individual hole sizes of the beads to ensure you get the correct threading material thickness.
Other Jewellery making equipment like pliers, adhesives and wire cutters can also come in handy if you don’t have them already.
