Jewel Bug

by: Cynthia Kolyn-Tough

There is no denying that I love my Swarovskis and if you are looking for a quick, yet sparkly project, this is it - a few Swarovskis, wrapped loops and you're all set!

If you are wondering about the name here is the scoop, there is a very pretty coloured beetle called the Jewel Bug (if you can believe a bug is pretty), whose shape is similar to the vintage Swarovski ovals and has an iridescent blue zircon colour with streaks of copper.

Who would have thought beads and bugs had so much in common!

For substitutions, we suggest the sapphire colour in the Swarovski Vintage bead and in the 6mm Swarovski round beads. We also have Holey Square links in Sterling Silver
