Dancing Sun Crystals

We have been selling Swarovski crystals and beads since 1974. We have also added crystals from Asfour of Egypt and a line of pewter hanging pieces. We feel very fortunate to be in this business, to have such wonderful customers and to be able to look at such beauty every time we pack an order. One crystal prism or pendant is beautiful on its own, but when you see the different shapes and colors together it is a dazzling sight. Order at our website or find us at festivals and events!
