C is For Crystals

I love sparkly things! I think that's what draws me to beading. I'm like a magpie, always on the hunt for something shiny.

One of the sparkly elements I love to use for beading is crystals. And what's not to love? They bling up any design almost immediately. Here are a few samples of bicone crystals, ranging from 2mm to 6mm in size.

And here are a few other crystal shapes that I have in my stash right now.

oooh, lovely shiny beads you have. I go crazy in bead stores, so I've forced myself to stay out of them until I seriously commit myself to doing something with the beads in my stash. I'm very impressed with your beaded pin.

My little girls would go nuts over those - I can't take them into Michaels without sacrificing hours of my life:)
