Hey beautiful! It’s not everyday I get to share a brand new box, let alone one that is full of beautiful crystals and pearls, which rival Swarovski. Since the future of Swarovski crystal stones, beads, and pearls is not looking very promising for beaders, this is a great time to start exploring alternatives. Fortunately, Erika, of the Story Telling Jeweller, has us covered with her new Preciosa Crystal and Pearl boxes
