This adorably fashionable collar necklace features Swarovski Crystal Hot Fix Flatbacks that have glue that has been pre-applied to the back for easy application with a Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool. The Swarovski Crystals include the 2078 XIRIUS Flatbacks Chalkwhite Hot Fix, White Opal Hot Fix, and Crystal Hot Fix, along with the 2080/4 Cabochon Crystal White Pearl Hot Fix, and the 2585 Graphic Flat Back Crystal Hot Fix. A black satin ribbon is tied onto the bottom for extra sweetness.

The Swarovski Crystal Graphic family, consisting of Flat Backs, Fancy Stones and Pendants, reflect the global emphasis on individuality and the corresponding importance of modular families of products. This radiant clan is defined by an astonishingly versatile geometric cut—a cut that brilliantly addresses design’s current love affair with androgyny, as well as acknowledging the major trend for updated classics.

The sparkling interplay between rough and smooth faceting creates an attraction of opposites, giving timeless style a modern, organic twist and ensuring the longevity of the Graphic family’s appeal. Easily integrated into a variety of designs, the strength of its adaptability lies in its affordable pricing and its minimalist look—a feature that also makes this family of crystals ideal for using in unisex designs.

Crystal Katana for applying Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks

The Crystal Katana Tool is a fabulous tool for applying Non Hot Fix crystals to surfaces using glue. The sticky end of the tool allows you to pick up the crystals simply and effectively place them into the glue. The metal end of the tool allows you to press the crystal gently into the glue for maximum hold and durability. I love using this brilliant tool, it is so much faster than beeswax or tweezers and there is no more mess or frustration when placing the crystals into the glue. It’s fabulous and I guarantee, you will love it too!

The design world has its focus firmly on the future with the rapid ascension of 3D printing. “Indeed, the future will see us able to buy an item online and print it out at home. With digital files so easily manipulated, it will also enable companies to more quickly adapt their products as to what works, or let the user themselves experiment with the design to enable true personalization.” (Peter Weijmarshausen, CEO and cofounder of 3D printing marketplace and community Shapeways.) With the escalation of 3D printing capabilities, the architectural and sculptural will offer a different sense of luxury. In parallel with this, the designs of the future remain firmly committed to green issues. These concerns, coupled with the advance in technology, have created an entirely new design ethic, with structures mimicking nature enjoying a new-found success as wearable pieces of art. In what has been termed “Next Nature,” technology and nature will now coexist, with nature providing endless inspiration for technology. The meeting of these polar opposites – nature and science – is transforming not only urban spaces but also our wardrobes.
