~CZ Escapade~

Ok, I love Swarovski crystals. They are so shiny and sparkly and beautiful! But, this weekend....I did a horrible thing. I...left them in their snap 'n' stack boxes and messed with their rivals: the Cubic Zirconia beads.

I have actually been obsessed with these beads for a while. My mom got me a pair of earrings made with these beads a couple of years ago. I was so in love with them. They are like little diamonds, hanging from my ears!! I didn't know what kind of beads they are and I didn't see them at any of the bead stores I shopped at. But, I finally found them in Hong Kong!!

Look! Just like diamonds!



So many different colors...I have more but was too lazy to pull them out of the bags to take pictures :)




Many shapes too! Look how thick the bead is!


After a whole weekend though, I only made 3 pairs of earrings. I had some issues with this necklace I was trying out...and another pair of earrings. I realized I need smaller jumprings so gonna get some soon.

Here's what I've got so far:

Classic...pure sparkle power


Something different...not completely sure about these...


Something simple. Love the stars!



Not sure if I should list these. I am not 100% happy with the pictures...I need to play with them more. Maybe I should just list the beads :) Supplies seem to do so well on etsy!

Oooh, those are some pretty beads! I love the heart-shaped ones!

I also really like the second earrings pictured. The shape is very unique and I think it's quite stunning!

So a girl wouldn't mind if I proposed to her using a CZ ring?
