The Swarovski crystal lochrose is considered to be a sew-on stone, but we see a hole through the center of a crystal, and we really really want to call it a bead. On the other hand, some people call this shape a sequin! Whichever name you prefer, these genuine Swarovski article #3188 Xirius Lochroses pack some serious sparkle for their size. They can be a sweet thin spacer bead, they are amazing when sewn onto fabric, and they are absolutely perfect for use as the brim of a snowman's hat in Christmas earrings, necklaces and pins (brooches).
