The upcoming Victoria's Secret Fashion show on CBS always manages to make the news. Some of the past promotional stunts featured really expensive gemstone decorated underwear few women could afford let alone wear.

It also never fails to amuse me that the show highlights something only women can wear but nonetheless also has a huge male following!  But this behind the scenes video is guaranteed to tweak the attention of everyone, both male and female, who design and make jewelry with Swarovksi Elements.

The Victoria's Secret Fashion show's design studio used over 2 million crystals for their extravaganza. Shown here are video captures of  some of the stunning designs. The fan design below took the designer 5 months to complete.

If you love Swarovski crystals, then expand your inventory by getting those created specifically for the fashion industry. These include buttons and other crystals with 2 holes which are designed for sewing onto garments. The  latter can be used as connecting beads.

There are also crystal encrusted zipper pulls and flat back crystals, to name a few more. Flat back crystals can be used to create pave style jewelry (see links below). Some of the crystals also come foil backed.  Here are some simple zipper pull earrings I made.
