Swarovski beads, charms and pendants are popular jewellery components. Many folks consider Swarovski, founded in Austria in 1895 by Bohemian Daniel Swarovski, to make the finest quality full-lead crystal in the world. Swarovski crystal creates beautiful prisms because it is optically pure and faceted with tremendous precision. Jewellery made with Swarovski crystal, therefore, grabs light and sparkles brilliantly. Jewellery crafters who want to move from hobbyist to seller find it especially important to purchase Swarovski and other materials as cheaply as possible. This is easy to do, since there are numerous options for purchasing Swarovski at wholesale prices.
