Miniature Swarovski Crystal Pineapples
I designed and created about 70 of these miniature Swarovski Austrian crystal beaded pineapples for a client's wedding reception name cards. They are fairly easy to make. You will need:
4mm Swarovski Crystals: I used round topaz colored crystals here but the bicone shapes also work. You will need 22 beads per pineapple.
Size 15º green delica glass beads: 48 beads per leaf which is 144 beads per pineapple.
28 gauge copper colored craft wire
Nail Clippers or wire cutters
Substitutions: You can use less expensive glass beads in place of the crystal beads if the cost per bead is too high. Crystal beads can cost 30¢ - 40¢ each. You can also use gold colored wire.
