Q.
How are Swarovski beads made?
- Angie
A.
The term "Austrian crystal" generally refers to crystals created and expertly machine cut by Swarovski. Although the exact molten glass formula is a closely guarded trade secret, Swarovski crystals are formed, then cut precisely. They are true color and very clear.

Swarovski crystal beads are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colors and effects, as well as a diverse line of products including beads, components, ornaments, mesh fabric and more.
