Without question, one of the hottest trends in jewelry over the last few years has been the emergence of Murano glass “bead companies” like Trollbeads, Pandora, Chamilia and more. Interchangeability, the huge variety of styles, and the ability to customize a piece to uniquely suit your tastes have all drawn legions of “bead converts.”
Now, newcomer WHIMSY Worldwide has added a new twist to the bead craze with a series of gorgeous Swarovski crystal encrusted beads in a rainbow of colors. Best known for their interchangeable bead rings (known as Whimsy rings) the firm now offers the crystal beads as a delightful complement to the popular Murano glass and sterling silver beads. They add a dash of (what else?) whimsy to any necklace, bracelet or ring.
The beads retail for $30 and are only available online at WHIMSY Worldwide.
