The New Shimmer Effect was created especially for dance sport, but of course, they can be enjoyed by all! The dance market is a huge industry, and a growing one at that. Just look at ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ and all of the dance competitions around the world, their sparkling costumes are absolutely gorgeous and let’s face it… they’re having just a little too much fun out there – (I want in!) with all of their twists, and turns, dips and doodles (ha, I threw in doodles just for fun and… to keep you on your toes 😉

Those dancers have got some real sparkling swag! And now you can too!

Why is SHIMMER so Special?


Exude Elegance with Confidence!

Shimmer Effect adds more brilliance, color vibrancy and unique light refractions to your dance costumes. The Swarovski Shimmer Effect provides a softer, more elegant shimmer that radiates 3 shades of a single color and accentuates every move.


Shine Bright with Confidence!

Unmatched quality, durability, and glamour to ensure the highest level of performance is achieved. Swarovski is the finest machine cut crystal in the world and has enjoyed this standing for over 150 years!


Wear with Confidence!

Lead-free Rhinestones or Crystal Flat backs are lighter in weight, allowing your costumes to be as light and free flowing as possible. Lead free crystals are complient with applicable laws and regulations giving you complete confidence when the stones are in contact with skin, hair and nails.


Wash with Confidence!

Wash resistant and durable foiling provides you with crystals with showcasing effects that remain sparkling and intact after machine washing or chemical cleaning.

DIY Face Gems ~ Applying Swarovski Crystals to Your Face Is Oh So Fun!

What to be, what to be for Halloween this year?? I didn’t plan my costume out in advance this year, so on the day of I found myself rummaging through our costume/party box full of fun wigs, funky sunglasses & all kinds of comical pieces, one of my favorites being a bright pink cowboy hat. I had just worn the pink cowboy hat, so alas I was uninspired.

Just then a light bulb went off in my mind!


Ah ha! CRYSTALS! I looooove crystals & have them everywhere, so why don’t I embellish my face!

Harmony Halloween 2015

It was so fun, really easy and I always love getting creative!

If I had more time, I would have added a lot more. Who knows maybe next year I’ll be a crystal princess and go all out!

Harmony Halloween 2 2015

I couldn’t find body glue anywhere, so I used eyelash glue and it worked really well. Just a little dab will do ya. I put a tiny dab of glue on my face and used the Crystal Katana to pick up the crystals and apply them to the glue. I pressed down for a few seconds and then it was on to the next. It was that simple!

I was inspired by this gorgeous picture!

I applied different colors and sizes of the Swarovski Crystal 2088 Flatbacks to the areas that I wanted sparkle.

Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks Amethyst

I started with the 2088-20ss Amethyst and 16ss Amethyst Swarovski Rhinestones.

I used the 2088-16ss Crystal and 2088-12ss Crystal and Crystal AB for the detailed fill in work.

I also used a couple pieces of the Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks 2520-10x8mm Cosmic Style as well as the 2808-6mm Heart Flatback Rhinestone (super cute heart, one of my faves!)

Swarovski Crystal Sew on Stones 3223 Nevette stones from Rainbows of Light

I found some of these cute Swarovski Crystal 3223-12mm Nevette Sew On Stones and threw a few of these on. They have a flat back which worked well and I just love this shape. I wanted to add different shapes and colors to make it as unique as possible.

2494 Swarovski Crystal Starlette Flatback Rhinestone from Rainbows of Light  2540 Curvey Swarovski Crystal Flatback

For some dramatic accents I applied the Swarovski Crystal 2494-10mm Starlet Flatbacks as well as the 2540-7mm Curvey Flatback in the beautiful coating of Crystal Paradise Shine.

2709 Swarovski Crystal Rhombus Flatback wholesale from Rainbows of Light

Last but certainly not least, I used the 2709-13mm Rhombus Swarovski Crystal Flatback for the center.
