About a month ago, I was contacted by Swarovski to check out their magazine: Create Your Style, Issue Sound. The magazine is of course about the famous Swarovski crystals, but that is not all. As the name of the magazine suggests, the magazine offers a lot of inspirations and how-to to create your own style using Swarovski crystals.
There is a lot of tutorials with step-by-step pictures to make accessories like pendant, earrings, necklaces, bangles, rings, and bags.My favorite is the Unchained Necklace! I love the array of chains in muted color palette. Another one is the Snakebites Bangle which includes the snake-print paper cutout for the bangles. Each project has a list of needed products with numbers and codes to make it easier to find them.
The projects in the magazine incorporate lots of techniques beyond stringing crystal together, like beads fusing, resin casting, beading, wiring, sewing, and a lot more.
You can check out the online preview of the magazine here, or win a copy! Please leave a comment if you’d like to win a copy and a winner will be picked randomly at the end of the week. Open to everyone worldwide!
