I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of the new flat back CRYSTALLIZED™ – Swarovski Elements. Beadalon now has the perfect findings and adhesive solutions to easily turn them into sparkly pendants.
Many thanks to Alisa from Har-Man Imports for donating a variety of crystal flat backs for my presentation to the South Jersey Bead Society last month. The ladies (and gentleman!) who participated used our new BeadFix™ Squares and Glue-On Bails to make gorgeous pendants. Then, we made dramatic necklaces by stringing their pendants onto our new 49 strand Beadalon Silver Color Wire and EZ Lobster™ Claw Clasps.
To make one of your own, trace the shape of the bail onto the BeadFix™ Square and cut it out. Peel off the brown backing paper with the white paper still attached, then attach the flat back rhinestone. Next, peel off the white backing paper, and attach it to the Glue-On Bail. BeadFix™ Squares are also great to use with cabochon stones. Allow 24 hours for maximum adhesion.
Post a comment below, and we’ll select one lucky winner to receive a pack of BeadFix™ Squares, both sizes of Glue-On Bails and a gorgeous CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements flat back crystal! We’ll collect comments for one week.
