1172035s38896 Swarovski Elements Rhinestones - 40 mm Reversed Chessboard Circle (2035) - Bermuda Blue (1)
You'll feel like a queen, stay up all knight, and never be board. You certainly won't want to pawn 1172035s38879 Swarovski Elements Rhinestones - 40 mm Reversed Chessboard Circle (2035) - Sahara (1)these!

We have some absolutely un-matched Chessboard-cut Swarovski Rhinestones. And what I think is most fabulous about these, apart from being the size of a small planet, is that they are reversed - with the foiling on the curved and faceted side, so that you are looking through the flat plane into a pool of colour and light. They are absolutely dazzling.


Now from here - I could segue into the rhinestones that we just added, s38868 Swarovski Elements Hot Fix Rhinestone - ss34 Flatback in Bezel (2013) - Light Siam / Gold (18)some hot-fix, some not, some ridiculously tiny, but I think these Hot Fix Rhinestones with their own bezels on them are way cool. I 1172028s38886 Swarovski Elements Rhinestones - SS 34 - Xilion Rose (2028) - Caribbean Blue Opal (24)have this idea for a tote bag with rhinestones on it ... with a dragon ... .









s38900 Swarovski Rhinestones - 12 mm Rivoli Cut (1122) - Ultra Emerald (1)OR - speaking of fabulous pools of light and colour - you could take a look at some new s38901 Swarovski Rhinestones - 12 mm Rivoli Cut (1122) - Ultra Ruby (1)"Ultra" colours in the Rivolis. Because, D4mn girl - these are gore-jus! Ultra Emerald, Ultra Ruby, Tangerine, and Crystal Iridescent Green.





s39250 Swarovski Fancy Rhinestones - 15.5 x 14 mm Pear / Heart Cut (4370) - Tanzanite Satin (1)Which leads us to some other Fancy Stones - s39251 Swarovski Vintage Rhinestones - 13 x 18 mm Classical Baguette (4565) - Light Rose (1)in particular - this Tanzanite Satin Pear cut - which is so utterly elegant - it cries out to be made into a ring worthy of Harlow or Taylor! Not to mention this Light Rose Baquette.






s38850 Glass Beads - 13 mm Villa - Square Spikes - Ferrari Red (25)Or, I could have slid into a discussion about the other exciting new shapes - such as the Preciosa Villa beads - which is a spike with a square profile. The interesting thing about these is that the holes are corner to corner, so when they are strung, they present two sides, and fit corner to corner.

s38847 Glass -  Pellet Beads - Silky Gold (Strand 50)Speaking of interesting shapes, we come to the Soutache or Pellet beads - which are shaped like a drum, and fit together like vertebrae, and really can be used easily with Soutache. The indented shape makes it easier to hold the Soutache in place as you stitch, as opposed to slithering off the side of a round bead. We just added 13 new colours.



s38831 Seedbeads - 15/0 Charlotte - 24 K Gold Plated AB (2 grams)
And finally, just for the seedbeaders, you should take a look at this - size 15 charlottes, in 24 K gold plated - with an AB finish. If that doesn't make your beady-heart go pitter-pat - better check your pulse!
