It’s been a busy and fast paced run up to Easter for the team at Crystal Parade, the first quarter of the year has been full of interesting and exciting projects. The most recent and definitely the most notable has seen the team working with the world renowned cake artist, Emma Jayne Cake Design.
The UK’s premier online retailer of craft supplies, embellishment equipment and costume making materials has been very busy recently. The team at the Warwickshire based company were commissioned to crystallise the house drape for the recent pantomime production of Cinderella at the London Palladium.
For many crystallizing projects, especially gifts, you may wish to write something in crystals such as a name, initial or age. It can be harder than it looks to get the text looking professional – it takes a bit of practice! Firstly, we recommend you practice gluing the crystal lettering onto a piece of paper, before you attach them directly to the surface of the object you are crystallizing.
People often ask us what the difference is between diamonds and Swarovski crystals. They both shine so brilliantly, and are used in jewellery pieces, yet crystals are much more affordable and versatile.
We’ve all heard the saying ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend’… but is it really so?! Swarovski crystals can be used to bling up absolutely anything, from a dress to a mobile phone case. Not to mention that a woman can afford a lot more sparkle if she opts for crystals over diamonds!
