  • Swarovski Crystal Samples

    Hey does anyone now where i can get a Swarovski Sample Board? I have samples in little bags but its so awkward to show people at parties. It would be great if i could get a sample board- the only one ive found is Jules Gems but theyre out of stock!

    Any IDeas?

    Have you tried ebay...I bought mine of there.

    Also I made my own one, you can by a sample pack (they are on string attached to card with the names written on the side, from Nosek Just Gems. 6mm is about £6.00 and 4mm is about £4.00 (its been a while since I bought them so I may have prices wrong - but they were cheap) (you could keep them like that if you wish, I attached it to more rigid card with my logo to make it stronger)

    Another company I use is beadsoultions (Devon) I know they have said to me they can make them to order - takes about 2 weeks and they are very reasonably priced. Have a word with them. Very friendly bunch, just drop them an email.

    Apart from those people I am not sure where else, I know when they do become available they go quick.

    Another solution that I do, is that I have made up a few bracelets with all the different colours and sealed them in clar bags and typed a lable with the colours on that are on the bracelet. This is how I do it for the bridal shops I supply too.

    Hope you find one soon.

      I wanted to get a colour chart when I set out. You can get them through ebay but they are all on auction and go for extautionate amounts. Jules gems never seem to have them in stock.
      Nosecs do a chart but it's only a piece of paper (not even card) and the crystals don't quite fit to the font size.



      I started out with the bags and stapled the tops together before adding a cover. following that, I thought there must be another way and so I sorted the crystals into colour families and threaded them onto memory wire bracelets. I then laminated tags detailing the colour names.

      it works really well and I've even had people try to buy it off my stall several times.

        Fantatstic idea BBD.
        I have samples in a bag so I can hold the different colours together and see how they look together, but I like the idea of a board too.

          OK do you know where sells the Sample bags preferably 6mm? That idea is amazing! Does it ever get hard to remember which colour is which?!

            Ive not seen 6mm samples only 4mm bicones.The ones I have arrived in individual bags with names labeled on them, but had to take them out of the bags and put them on headpins with the name taped round the pin, as I couldnt properly see the beads through the bag,plus once more than 1 of similar colours are out of the bags its easy to get things mixed up.You get to recognise the colours you use the most.

            Try mail order nottingham beads.Sorry dont know the direct link.

                how about these? I just did a quick google for sample packs and this came up which also includes the pearl samples as well (it says only just over 50 swarov colours but aren't there 60 something colours?). Ive never dealt with them before but I am tempted to get this pack.

                They also do individual sample packs in colour ranges (i.e pinks, reds etc)
