Today my guest, Angie of Ang’s Divine Designs, shares some ideas for using her favorite beads.

Inspirational Beading: What is your all-time favorite bead?

Angie: I love Swarovski or any crystal glass! I love the way they sparkle!

Inspirational Beading: What is your favorite technique or method to use them?

Angie: My favorite way to use the beads is making chandelier earrings.

Inspirational Beading: Of all the creations you’ve made with these beads, which one is your favorite?

Angie: Wow, not quite sure which one is my favorite. I love this Motion Pendant set and the motion charm on the necklace especially.

Inspirational Beading: Do you have any tips for making the most of these beads?

Angie: The only tips I can really think of to give are just to "play" around with different combinations and always be open to new ideas. I've found that people really seem to like anything really funky and different.

Angie: I really love the Swarovski chandeliers!

Inspirational Beading: If you were stranded on the moon, and you could have only one kind of bead with you, would you choose these?

Angie: I would definitely love to have Swarvoski beads with me on the moon, I love the way they sparkle!

Inspirational Beading: In your opinion, what is the best source for these beads?

Angie: I shop mostly at Hobby Lobby and Michaels, but have also bought beads at indoor flea markets.
