When you’re working with Swarovski beads, the sheer number of colour options available can be overwhelming. If you’re a beginner, knowing which colours complement each other best can be particularly tricky.
In this blog, we’ll reveal some of the best Swarovski beads colour combos. This should hopefully give you a little inspiration on which colours to work with.
Swarovski beads are perfect for creating elegant designs. The natural sparkling effect the beads have automatically produces a high-quality, elegant look. However, if you’d like to fully utilise the elegant design these beads can have, there’s a few colour combinations you’ll want to try out.
If you’re looking to create wedding jewellery for example, a classical all-white look is ideal. You can use the crystal 101, white opal, crystal moonlight and crystal white pearls together, to create a truly stunning, elegant, bridal look.
If you’re looking to create something a little more colourful, you’ll have a huge choice of design options. If you take a look at the full crystal bead colour chart, which can be found online, you’ll see there’s a staggering amount of choice available.
You can mix and match a variety of bright colours. Or you can stick to using multiple tones of one colour. Red is one of the best attention-grabbing colours you can work with. We recommend combining Burgundy, Padparadscha, Crystal Red Magma and Siam crystal beads. If you want to tone it down a little, you can add shades of brown for a more autumnal look.
You can use a variety of Swarovski bead colours to create fresher designs. These would be best suited for summer, or to create more casual jewellery.
A mixture of turquoise works well to create this look, or you can combine it with coral or red for a bolder design. Pastel colours can also work well together here.
