While there are a few companies in the world manufacturing crystal beads, the leader in the industry is Swarovski. Daniel Swarovski, a young man from Bohemia, invented and patented a crystal cutting machine in 1892. In 1895, he moved his family and his factory from Bohemia to the town of Wattens, high in the Alps of Austria. Here, he had the water he needed to run his machines, and he was far away from the competition. In 1913, With his three sons, Wilhelm, Friedrich and Alfred, Daniel Swarovski built a plant for the production of crystal, in order to provide raw material of the highest quality.
