  • 2 Fidela Tresori // Mar 14, 2013 at 7:28 am

    Dog teeth amethyst? I’m clueless here. LOL

  • 3 Kelly Lemus // Mar 14, 2013 at 7:35 am

    Dalmation Jasper beads for sure. 62004-01SP

  • 4 Tamra Graubner // Mar 14, 2013 at 7:43 am

    My favorite is 6860-COSMO38. With today’s hint I would guess Dalmation Jasper

  • 5 Fidela Tresori // Mar 14, 2013 at 8:06 am

    Oops! Forgot to leave my favorite pendant in my comment above! Really tough choice but I think I would have to choose:

    Code: 6650-COP22
    Swarovski 6650 22mm Cubist Pendant Crystal Copper

  • 6 Barbara Shaw // Mar 14, 2013 at 8:06 am

    my favorite is 6262-CAP26 ,hint dalmatian jasper

  • 7 Anita Shore // Mar 14, 2013 at 8:25 am

    My favorite pendant is 6041-CST38

  • 8 Allison // Mar 14, 2013 at 8:41 am

    Guess I’ll go with the majority, Dalmatian jasper!!

    Swarovski 4139 14mm Cosmic Ring Crystal Vitrail Light

  • 9 Jan Neff-Sinclair // Mar 14, 2013 at 8:44 am

    I’d have to say Dalmation jasper. My favorite pendant, and it was hard to decide, is the shell pendant in AB finish, 6723-CRYSAB28.

  • 10 Susan M // Mar 14, 2013 at 9:00 am

    Hopefully it will be a cat to chase the beads for you… 6670-CAP50

  • 11 Miss M. Turner // Mar 14, 2013 at 9:21 am

    “puppies” does make me think of 101 Dalmatians which would relate to dalmatian jasper as a bead. But that seems maybe too obvious. Not sure what other “dog” stones exist though!

    Facorite is Code: 4139-RMM20

  • 12 Tina Sparacino // Mar 14, 2013 at 10:59 am

    Dalmation Jasper beads is my guess, even though it seems to be the obvious….6261-BLS27

  • 13 Vickie Graham // Mar 14, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    A guess? Hmmmm…maybe new dog themed charms?

    My favorite pendant…SWAROVSKI 34mm Teardrop Crystal AB 6100-CAB34

  • 14 Cindy Newell // Mar 14, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    I’m not seeing anything about dogs here. I see the hint: a leader in sparkling designs. So I’m thinking it’s something new in Swarovski! I love this pendant! 6261-BLS27

  • 15 Elizabeth Kucera // Mar 14, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    I would guess dalmation jasper. An my favorite is 6261-CAP27. the pink heart.

  • 16 Sheila McGraw // Mar 14, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    I think Swarovski über-designer Sherri Serafini will join your team…..my favorite bead is4139-RMM 20

  • 17 Constance Simon // Mar 14, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    Code 6261-Cap27 -
    I think the who will be the three witches colors from Oz the Great and Powerful.

    That’s why my favorite pendant is Swarovski 6670 50mm De-Art . Strong and powerful color! :)

  • 18 Karen // Mar 14, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    A Swarovski crystal pendant in the shape of a doggie bone!

    My fave pendant is Code: 6041-RMM38

  • 19 Rita // Mar 14, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    I’m leaning toward Ambassador Jamie North, who rescues dogs. I love the crystal disk pendants: 6039-API38.

  • 20 Alissa S. // Mar 14, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Maybe a dog? My favorite is this: 6100-CBB24

  • 21 Linda H // Mar 14, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    I’m guessing it’s something from Swarovski – maybe a bone-shaped bead?

    My favorite pendant is Swarovski 6670 50mm De-Art Pendant Crystal Golden Shadow.

  • 22 Angela Ciofolo // Mar 14, 2013 at 5:44 pm

  • 25 Donna // Mar 14, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    Puppies and sparkles…definitely has to be my favorite Swarovski ambassador, the Queen of Bling, Kristal Wick! My favorite pendant is the Xilion heart, 6228-CRYSAB40.

  • 26 Sheila // Mar 15, 2013 at 6:48 am

    My guess to start off would be…an emerald color Swarovski crystal since they are the leader in design. Emerald is also the color this year. As for the puppies helping with the beading process, Toto comes to mind. He goes to the emerald city with Dorothy. But this time maybe he strings little crystals to help Dorothy find her way back home. Then again, it was but only a dream. Like this, as we ponder over the clues, our imaginations try to decipher. Maybe, I’ll click my heals three times and the answer will appear.~//(*.*)\\~ code 6261-CAP27

  • 27 Maria // Mar 15, 2013 at 7:42 am

    My guess is it’s something Swarovski because they are a leader in sparkly designs….and must have something to do with dogs so I would say…..Swarovski Crystal Puppy beads or pendant , my favorite pendant is Code: 6262-CAB26

  • 28 Kristi Bessson // Mar 15, 2013 at 8:24 am

    Serius (not sure I spelled that right?) Swarovski rhinestones.
    Fave pendant 6621-CRY28

  • 29 Terrie Marcoe // Mar 15, 2013 at 8:29 am

    I think somebody has had a baby, and perhaps her name is Amethyst Pearl, from the Facebook image post I saw this morning…

    I love the Baroque pendants, and my favorite is the Jet one – Swarovski 6090 22mm Baroque Pendant Jet

  • 30 Connie // Mar 15, 2013 at 8:55 am

    Who is Kristal Wick? I think it’s new crafting beads from Swarovski!
    My favorite pendant is 4439-JET14 I hope I win!!!!! I already have the perfect bail!

  • 31 Fidela Tresori // Mar 15, 2013 at 3:21 pm

  • 33 Tammy Millard // Mar 15, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    Finding/supplies/beads to make our four-legged friends “custom” accessories?

  • 34 Caroline Horne // Mar 15, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    My guess would be Swarovski Dogbone (farfarelle) bead. My favourite pendant is this one that I’ve been ogleing for years item #ABAIC0

  • 35 Fidela Tresori // Mar 15, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    A kit of Swarovski beads and a tutorial to make a Toto pendant? ;0)

  • 37 Susan M // Mar 15, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    if it can’t be a kitty, then perhaps a new selection of pet products so we can make collars and such with spark-lies for our fur babies
    … 6670-CAP50

  • 38 Jeanette L // Mar 15, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    Houndstooth amethyst beads!!! I love the wild heart crystal blue 6240-bls12

  • 39 Heather Figueroa // Mar 15, 2013 at 9:13 pm

    I have pondered on this one and my guess is that you have bought a Malamute or Huskie puppy. Alaskan dogs, not Austrian, but they are popular in cold countries like Austria.

    The branch clue has me thinking you are getting an “offshoot” to the Husky or Malamute. Hmmm, I will wait for the next clue.
    love the large pendants…6190-COP35

  • 52 Lynn Hedgecock // Mar 17, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    Definitely Kristal Wick!
    Code: 6734-CLU23, Luminous Green has great possibilities for autumn.

  • 53 Kelley Fogle // Mar 17, 2013 at 6:58 pm
