What does the word ‘bling’ mean to you? To me, it is jewelry with some sparkle to it. I have found that many women who say they are not into bling actually select pieces with a bit of spark. Many of my beads are crystal or faceted fire polished glass. When I incorporate just a few of these with stone, glass or vintage beads, the effect is subtle. Light reflects off the crystals to give just the right touch of dazzle.
