The Swarovski brand has used more than 60 designers for their renowned crystal figurines. Surely, there are many other talents individuals who contribute to these creative crystal designs, but commonly, only a single individual is credited for the majority of the figurine designs.
Elisabeth Adamer is a Swarovski artist that joined the design team in 2004. But prior to that, Elisabeth Adamer’s education includes four years of vocational school for arts and crafts in Innsbruck and a higher education program at the Glasfachschule Kramsach. She graduated from this specialized glass arts school with a degree in Design in 2002.
Elisabeth Adamer credits her sister, an avid collector, for her introduction into Swarovski. She states that animals have been an important part of her life, and recently taken interest in the underwater world.

Of all the Elisabeth Adamer designs, I like the Swarovski Sea Goldies. I enjoy snorkeling to see the brilliantly colored salt-water fish, and this crystal piece reminds me of the good times I’ve had snorkeling.
