These 8mm chatons are from the Swarovski Spring/Summer 2016 launch
and they really are a beautiful new innovation.
What makes them special is that they have an opaque coating
to the reverse of the stone which gives a lovely subdued 'powder' look to the crystal.
Looking at them 'in the flesh' I can see that the crystal is clear and the effect comes from the backing.
I do love these little beauties and am very excited to see that pastel colours
are going to be in fashion again for next year.
Bring on those pastel pretties!
