These are genuine 3mm Swarovski bi-cone crystal beads/elements. These are the new 5328 Xilion cut bi-cones that replace the 5301 series. I recently became a legitimate reseller for Swarovski elements and will always make my paperwork available for folks to verify they are getting what they pay for :)
I noticed that no one really gives you the option to buy multiple colors in the amounts you want, so here is your chance :)
This listing is for 144 beads and you may mix your colors in any amount you wish to with the colors offered :) Just let me know how many you want of each color in the buyer comments during checkout, through paypal or through email "email@example.com" For example: say you want 50 of Fuchsia, 60 of Clear and 34 of Aqua - just let me know when you order :)
I have other listings for lower and higher numbers of beads, of course the higher the number the cheaper they are :) If you need a close up of a color just let me know and I'll send you one :)
If you would like more or less of any items in the shop or would like to purchase multiple listings, please contact us and we will make you a custom listing that will save you even more :)
Please pay attention to the size of the beads so you get what you need. 3mm is very small as are the 4mm bi-cones, and I always see reviews where people say they are smaller then they thought. These are genuine Swarovski Elements and the measurements are exact. If you are not sure of a size, just simply look at a ruler on the metric side to see where the 3mm, 4mm or 6 mm marks are :) Bi-cones are not round so the ends are a lot smaller in width as well. The 3/4 or 6mm size refers to the exact center of the bead and not the ends.
Please remember that the only "Official" Swarovski Element Packaging is done in "Gross Packs" as shown in the photos (buying in Bulk) and is the only way to ensure you are getting genuine Swarovski crystals and not fake ones. There are only 2 official distributors in North America currently and I get my supplies from them. In order to sell them in smaller amounts I have to remove them from the factory packaging and put them in smaller baggies. I will label the colors on the outside of the baggies for you and make my invoices (with price blacked out available upon request) :)
I see a lot of listings referencing Swarovski crystal beads/elements and notice that the asking price does not even cover the "REAL" Wholesale cost of the beads themselves :( As they say, if something looks to good to be true, it usually is, so don't be fooled. I have included 2 sites to go to and see how to tell the difference between REAL Swarovski items and fakes. Don't get me wrong, a lot of folks selling fakes do not even realize what they are doing. They simply bought them in bulk and assumed they were getting what they were told they were getting. I have sold glass/crystal beads that were not Swarovski before and after comparing the two together, lordy is there a GIANT quality difference. You will never find better crystal beads/elements then Swarovski.
Our shipping rates are based on (cost of postage, shipping supplies, ink, paper, envelope and paypal costs). After processing orders if there was too much paid for shipping/handling, we always refund the difference :)
