Colourful Swarovski beads
These painted crystal beads in neon colours and more subtle nuances are all produced by the famous crystal company Swarovski, although they look quite different from the faceted Swarovski beads the company is known for all over the world. Lacquered crystals are of exactly the same high quality as the faceted crystals this brand otherwise stands for.
The holes in the beads are 0.8mm in diameter and are hard to widen because the beads mainly consist of crystal glass. This is why lacquered crystals are best suited for being strung on headpins, thin earrings or beading wire.
Please note: The lacquer may have covered a part the hole. In this case you can easily open it up with a needle.
