Bead work transforms many ordinary items into something extraordinary. Lines of shimmering beads, strands of sparkling crystals, well placed rhinestones, and even luminescent pearls draw the eye while adding elegance and luxury to centerpieces and fabric accents. And the best part is that beads are inexpensive compared to solid crystal or gemstone alternatives.
Candle holders are by far the most versatile decorative elements and add a lot of punch for a small cost. Added beadwork can create a decorative look. Or, when crystal beads surround a votive holder they act as a way to diffuse the light, soften it and add even more sparkle to the flickering candle light within. Other gemstone beads warm the light, or add fun colors as the light filters through the translucent blues and pinks of the bead work. Larger candle holders and candelabras draped with crystal beads are another great example of how an inexpensive item can transform objects into elements worthy of event, gala, or wedding décor. Beaded items are easily moved from an event table to your own home décor, making them a wonderful choice for decorating.
