Many people enjoy designing with Crystallized(TM) – Swarovski Elements, but if you consider yourself a beginner, things can get confusing when it comes to figuring out what size StoneBead, Pearl, or Flat Back you would like or need for your project.

SS sizes = Stone Sizes

PP sizes = Pearl Plate

MM sizes = Millimeters

In order to figure out the best size for your particular project, Merchants Overseas has a Sizing Chart you can visually reference, which also shows the different sizes in relation to each other:

We also have an exclusive Merchants Overseas Stone Sizing Card which we include in all Welcome Packages for free.  Ask a sales associate for one today at 800.333.4144:

Every year The Tucson Bead Show is the place to be for anyone in the business of making jewelry and other creations involving beads, gems, minerals, etc, from all over the world.  Merchants Overseas had a large exhibit area in the Grand Pavilion where we showcased our amazing collections of Crystallized(TM) – Swarovski Elements while also showcasing our new BEADELLE(TM) line of Pave´ beads, Pave´ clasps, Rhinestone Balls, Rondelles & Squardelles, Crystal Splash, Crystal picture frames, and most importantly the Crystal Buckles!

The BEADELLE(TM) Crystal Buckles are a great product due to their endless creating possibilities.  They are great when used with fabric or ribbon, and are perfect as event decor.  They are currently available in round, oval, rectangle, square, heart, and half circle shapes. We had a great response to the buckles from show goers which was very exciting! Now only available in silver-plating, Merchants plans on extending the line to offer gold plated buckles as well!

Merchants Overseas’ team members also brought with them our new project cards as inspiration to showcase the beautiful jewelry that can be made with the BEADELLE(TM) Pave Beads and Rhinestone Balls, while also mixing in some CRYSTALLIZED(TM) – Swarovski Elements!

Whether you are getting married this year, or just attending a special event, it is always helpful to know quick and easy ways to look amazing with stuff you already own.  Shoes are always going to be important no matter what the outfit or occasion, and that’s why it is well worth an extra couple of minutes to make sure you get it right.

When it comes to special occasion shoes, you have 2 choices.  By something in a retail store,  or you can improve the shoes you already own.

A great way to do this is simply by adding Shoe clips! Not only can you use shoe clips on different shoes, they easily can be taken off and you have your original shoes back.  You can easily go from Day to Night with these.

These particular shoes are plain,  inexpensive, black satin shoes.  The shoe clips are plain metal, you can buy a pack of 12- 6 gold and 6 silver for around $4.99 on ebay or your nearest craft store.

Now if you like this look, the fun and easy part includes gluing (using a 2-part epoxy glue) a Crystallized(TM) Swarovski (4759) 28mm Flat Back Fancy Stone onto each shoe clip.  Give the glue about 15 minutes to dry and just clip!  And your done!
