I got a lovely bracelet made from (what looks like) Swarovski bicone beads. Lovely except those beads scratch - is there anything I can put on the edges to smooth them out (or are they safe to file? and with what?) Or just be sure to wear the bracelet over a long-sleeve sleeve?  Cheesy

If it's a large bracelet, you could try to 'line' it with nice fabric... it could give a good effect.

I don't know if there would be any other way to buffer it besides lining it like the above commenter said.

Is it possible that the bracelet is too short?  Swarovski beads do have sharp edges, which are part of what makes them sparkle, but they aren't so sharp they should scratch you.  I'd see if there's any way you can add a tiny bit of length, maybe another jump ring or something.  Could you post a picture?

hmm, not sure what you can do... you can't file them... maybe making it looser is your best bet. I'd double-check if those are true Swars cause they don't scratch in my experience.

absolutely ,it is not safe to file them,cause they are fragile and there will be more and more scratch if you do that.
