Get a great discount on these beautiful DIY design items!

Just in time for Holiday season projects, if you haven’t heard of “buckles” before, crystal buckles are a very popular design element normally used alone or accessorized with fun colored ribbon on photo albums, invitations, gift baskets, candle votives, holiday cards, wire wrap jewelry etc.  It is a super easy way to add sparkly, holiday “Bling” to any Do-It-Yourself project. They can also be used as a decorative fashion piece when added to scarves, hats, belts, etc.


While we are known for having the largest collection of SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and The BEADELLE(R) Line, we also have a mixed selection of metal, chains, cubic zirconia, and integrated products that are new to the MO site!

These items are extremely unique and affordable,  making them perfect to use with your beautiful crystals!
