I'm not a big fan of swarovski crystals. Just because they've been used to death by so many people. HOWEVER. There are swarovski crystals, and then there are SWAROVSKI crystals.
For those who know, vintage swarvs are marvelous little things. Absolutely freaking gorgeous.
Laura McCabe made some amazing things with Swarvs, and this book pretty much showcases her incredible work.
I already know how to bezel almost anything (Not bragging, just sayin') so really I bought this book for the beaded beads. She calls them Crown Jewels. I won't be perfecting them anytime soon, but it'll be fun to learn something new. The 30% off coupon at Borders helped a lot too...
