These Swarovski crystal components are dressed in the perpetually popular color of fuchsia. A member of the purple family, fuchsia connects beautifully with nearby shades of red, lavender, violet and pink. Designers can draw on the flexibility of fuchsia in jewelry and accessories that will transition from season to season, making it ideal for warm-weather wear or cool jewels.
Rose montées (pronounced mohn-tayz) are flat back crystals with a lower profile than chaton montées that come pre-mounted in a silver-plated pewter (tin-based alloy) base metal setting with two stringing directions. Sew onto material, use in wirework or incorporate into beadwork.
