If you are applying Swarovski Crystals to bathing suits that are not breathable, then it is best to use the Non Hot Fix Flatback Rhinestones and use the E6000 glue. The Crystal Katana is a fabulous tool that will pick up the Crystal Rhinestones and place them exactly where you want them. It’s a dream tool and will make your life and Flatback projects soooooo much easier!

Hope you have fun enhancing your bathing suits this summer!

See Why This Sparkling Halloween Mask is the Cat’s Meow!

happy-halloween

It’s that fun time of year where rich fall colors delight our senses, pumpkins line the doorsteps and that eerie feeling of something spooky is just around the corner…. HALLOWEEN!

Halloween will be here before you know it, as as we thoroughly enjoy our spiced lattes (down to the last delicious drop), it’s fun to ponder… what shall I be this year?

besties

I haven’t decided what I’ll be this year, but my best friend Lauren (here we are having a ball at her wedding) is going as a kitty cat and asked me to add some Swarovski Crystals to her cat mask. Well, she certainly came to the the right person for that job (I’ve got crystals coming outta my ears, no not literally, that would just be ridiculous  😉 BUT, I do leave a trail of sparkles everywhere I go (I swear, every week the vacuum consumes more crystals than Kashi hair!)…so honestly, how can a bestie refuse?

besties-forever

I had a lot of fun embellishing her cat mask with Swarovski Crystal Flat back Rhinestones and I thought it would be fun to show you what I created and give you the step by step instructions on how to create something similar for yourself, or for your bestie  🙂

free-diy-diresctions-on-adding-swarovski-crystals-to-halloween-mask-design-and-instructions

Steps to Embellish Your Halloween Mask with Swarovski Crystals

Here is what you will need to add Swarovski Crystals to a furry mask. (please note: the mask will need to be furry to be able to affix the Hot Fix Rhinestones, if it is not furry, then you will need to glue them on using an epoxy glue, my favorite being the E6000 glue). Below are the Crystal shapes that I used, but there are numerous different styles of Swarovski Flat backs to choose from to get your creative juices flowing.

Swarovski Crystal Bow Tie Flat Back Rhinestone 2858-12mm Bowtie Crystal Hot Fix

Supplies

1 Furry Cat Mask (I couldn’t find the exact one she sent me, but here are some options to choose from)

Crystal Katana Tool

Bejewler Pro Hot Fix Tool

free-diy-diresctions-on-adding-swarovski-crystals-to-halloween-mask

I started with a plain black cat mask (I guess I was so excited to start adding the Swarovski crystals, that I forgot to take a picture of the plain mask, but hey, I’m sure you can use your wild imagination  😉

Starting with one side of the top of the eye, I used the crystal Katana to pick up the crystals and place them where I wanted them (I have found that this method is MUCH easier than using tweezers). Next, I used the Bejewler Hot Fix Tool to secure the crystals in place which only take a few seconds for each stone.

One great tip that I have found to work very well, is to use one size smaller tip on the bejewler tool than your stones, this way the hot tip won’t come into contact with the underside of your project, so that there is no way it can inadvertently heat up or ruin any part of your project. Pass that tip along to your Bejewler friends – they’ll love ya for it!

free-diy-diresctions-on-gluing-swarovski-crystals-to-halloween-mask

Before you know it, your plain black cat mask is looking like the Cat’s Meow!

I decided my bestie’s kitty mask just had to be as regal as she is, so I added a little crown on the top, accentuating the bottom with the beautiful shaped Leaf Flatback.

Last but certainly not least, for the final touch, I added the Bow Tie Flatback as her adorable little noes accent. I think it’s as cute as a button!

free-diy-diresctions-on-embellishing-swarovski-crystals-to-halloween-mask

So there you have it, the final embellished kitty mask and it only took a couple of hours. I sent it off to Lauren, she absolutely LOVED it and can’t wait to show it off!

I hope this project inspires you to create something fabulous & sparkly this Halloween! Please post and share pictures with me of you, your friends’ or kiddos Halloween costumes this year, I would LOVE to see them!

New Swarovski Crystal Spring and Summer 2017 Innovations:

The Balance of Nature Focusing on The Progressive Trend WATER

WATER is arguably the most fundamental and powerful of all life forces. Water is essential to life, we simply cannot survive without it. Water is dynamic. It can be both devastatingly violent, or tranquil and calming. Whether we celebrate its depth and stillness, or simply gaze it in contemplative awe – water with its symbolic sense of rebirth and renewal, is influencing our life in new ways and holding the design world in thrall.

Swarovski Color and Jewelry Trends Spring Summer 2017

So often we look to nature to inspire us in many aspects of our life and water is shaping our world in a variety of new ways. Wellness spas centered on water and hydrotherapy are on the rise, while aquariums and underwater hotels help to highlight the inherent beauty of the marine environment.

Swarovski Crystal Water color and jewelry trends Spring Summer Innovations

Fashion and Jewelry Trends

Jewelry designs, fashion motifs and home decor that echo the brilliant hues of coral reefs, draw our attention to the need to preserve these fragile marine environments. They help us to be more mindful in protecting  our natural habitat and help us to be aware that clean water and keeping our ecosystems pristine, is inherently vital to our continued wellbeing.

BODY-CON FASHION ATHLEISURE TREND INCORPORATING CRYSTALS

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear trend

(Athleisure Wear Trend Pictures Compliments of SWAROVSKI)

Athleisure wear continues to be very popular with the idea that athletic wear can also be stylish and upgraded with embellishments using Swarovski Crystal Sew-On Stones, Swarovski Crystal Buttons and Swarovski Crystal Flatback Rhinestones. Fashion focuses on form with easy-to-wear pieces in bright hues, boldly decorated with crystal for a new day-wear design aesthetic.

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear Rock this popular trend

To make your Athleisure tops more fashionable, apply Transfers or Crystal Tex to add a bit of glamour. Geometric shapes arranged with an organic feel are especially popular. (please Contact Me for ordering details)

Athletic wear will continue to be very popular. The trend is moving towards embellishing athletic wear with Crystals and creating designs that can be dressy enough to transition from workouts into day activities, even work (if permitted), and (sometimes) even day into evening. It’s all about being able to transition from the gym or your yoga/palates class into your daily life, seamlessly. To do this well, your athletic wear needs to be fashionable and accessorized with crystals. (Any chance to add more Crystals into my life, well, what’s not to LOVE?!!)

MOVEMENT

Jewelry designs and embellished fabrics will embrace shapes generated by the movement of water – undulating, wavy elements are heavily embellished with crystal.

The fluidity of modern lifestyles extends into fashion. Glittering crystal components reflect the beauty of light on water.

Blinded By The Bling!

Blinged Helmet 6

I blinged out my helmet in style with non other than SWAROVSKI Crystals!

I decided that if I’m going to have to wear a helmet, it might as well be a fashion statement just as much as a safety measure!

Harmony Blue Bird Day

I’ve been snowboarding for about 20 years now and I absolutely LOVE it! It’s big kid fun,  keeps me young and let’s face it, the only thing this Arizona born and bred girl looks forward to in the winter.

Blinged Helmet 7

Living in Colorado is an adventure in and of itself. People here are incredibly adventurous and love the outdoors – myself included! We need to wear helmets for all kinds of activities, so why not spice them up a bit and get excited to put them on!

Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks Wholesale to the Public

SWAROVSKI Flatbacks Are Gorgeous!

Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks are so fun and versatile, with endless shapes and colors to choose from, all your designs will be unique and fabulous!

Blinged Helmet 4

 I found a few super large Flatback Stones and combined them with medium and smaller rhinestones to create my design. The first two large Crystals are the 2035 -40mm and 30mm Chessboard Flatbacks. Their faceting structure is just as it describes and produces and amazing array of sparkles. I added two 20mm Chessboard Flatbacks to the sides as well as the 2520 Cosmic Flatbacks at an angle and filled in with a few 2088-20ss Round Xilion  Flatbacks and 2711 Triangle Flatbacks (which are the Hot Fix kind, meaning they have the glue pre-applied to the back, but I just used the E6000 glue instead and it worked great. You can find E6000 glue at most hardware or craft stores).

Swarovski Crystal Rocks    Swarovski Crystal Rocks in Jewelry

I also used a piece of the Swarovski Crystal Rocks in the shape of a heart and glued this like normal. The Crystal Rocks product is an amazing creation that takes halved Bicone Beads clustered together on one giant piece where you can cut shapes out of and glue them on to pretty much any surface. You can glue it into jewelry molds and it’s great for embellishing costumes, dresses or any type of fabric for fashion or home decor. It’s as versatile as your imagination. If  you’re interested in working with this product, please contact me for details.

Blinged Helmet 2

I also used the Swarovski Crystal 2808 Heartshaped Flatback, the 2753 Edelweiss Flatback, the 2708 Molecule Flatback, and the 2072 Dome Flatback.

If you, your children, friends or family who don’t like wearing helmets, well here’s the best way to making wearing them extremely fun! I can’t wait to wear my new blinged out helmet on my next snowboarding trip!

Blinged Helmet 3

As you can see, SWAROVSKI Crystals give off the most brilliant sparkle in the world!

I hope I don’t blind anyone with all this bling!
