I confess, I didn't....I thought they were a bit....ahem....pretentious but I've seen the light courtesy of my good friend Lilian Chen. What she can do with a few crystals and some wire is mind blowing. Check out her work as a Swarovski Ambassador if you want to see for yourself.
And so, newly inspired, I'm humming while I work....I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, with a beautiful (crystal) bead! :-)
