New Press Releases
(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, announces the arrival of new color and shape innovations from Swarovski crystal for Fall/Winter 2010-11. Fire Mountain Gems and Beads is one of the first suppliers in the United States to receive the Swarovski crystal color and product innovations for the jewelry-making industry.
Be the first to offer the following new color and shape innovations, along with many line additions (sizes and colors) in other popular shapes.
Named after the gorgeous cyclamen plant, Swarovski crystal cyclamen opal combines glistening berry and fuchsia hues with a soft, underlying opalescence. A spectacular color-play of amethyst purple and baby pink shades accented with a flash of blue and yellow, creating a mesmerizing effect.
Swarovski crystal greige is a perfect combination of grey and beige, offering a crystal color slightly darker than the popular crystal silver shade, yet lighter than the black diamond crystal bead. The smoky, subtle color has just enough luminescence for brilliant jewelry designs.
Crystal Metallic Light Gold
Crystal metallic light gold 2X is a rich, metallic effect that covers the entire crystal bead. The earthy, mineral-like tones include an opulent gold glinting with a dark titanium hue. As a warm metallic tone, Swarovski crystal crystal metallic light gold 2X combines seamlessly with both gold and silver metals.
Crystal Coral Pearl
Swarovski crystal coral pearl is a beautiful match to genuine salmon coral. The intense, on-trend color brings a high-fashion, vintage look from the 1960s and '70s to modern jewelry designs. The retro-inspired crystal coral pearl complements a wide range of colors and gemstones including turquoise, peridot and cobalt blue colors.
Combining a crystal core with an innovative pearl-like "nacre" coating, Swarovski crystal pearls have a flawless surface and perfect curves that warm to the skin just like fine South Seas pearls. Swarovski crystal pearls are resistant to UV rays and perfumes for long-wearing, heirloom-quality jewelry.
Chessboard Bead (5005)
