  • hello everyone, im tiarna


    I love this site, im happy i found it.
    My main thing i do is growing swarvoski crystals and the crafting them by hand to make semi-precious beads for jewellery design.

    During my free time i like to creat charm bracelets and earrings with tibetan silver and crystals from my family company, which i then sell at my local market in the evenings.

    To see the type of crystal beads i produce you can see on eBay, my user name is super-joja. Its a new venture for me and one i hope will enable me to share my crafts to the world.

    i hope you like them, and thanks for having this forum, hopefully i can share and others can share with me some new tecniques in designs.

        I guess we could try growing our own!!
        all you need is: a plant pot
        a little water
        a sunny spot

        First take the crystal of your choice (a good 4mmm 5301 bicone is a good start)
        put the compost into the pot.
        make a small hole and insert the swarovski crystal.
        add water
        place in the sun and wait...........and wait........and wait.... and who knows, maybe next summer you will be able to harvest your swarovski tree!
