I’ll be honest, my personal crafting experience had not prepared me for the excitement I felt the first time I saw the rainbow of beautiful colored crystals from Jolee’s Jewels, not to mention the really cool things you can make with them! Sparkle is where it’s at, my friends, and it’s easy to add glimmer and shine to, well, anything!
With “flat back” crystals, you can design your own fashion embellishments to express your signature style and color choices. Add them to shirts, jeans, flip-flops, hats, sunglasses, sneakers—pretty much anything you wear can be blinged! But why stop there? Add them to picture frames, handmade cards, tote bags, purses, key chains, cell phones, lampshades... ok, you get the idea, right?
Crystal flat backs from CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements are the perfect choice for your first venture into stylish glitz. Choose from an array of colors and sizes (3mm, 4mm, and 5mm). If you are glamorizing a non-fabric project, select flat backs that are to be applied using a jewelry glue or a 2-part epoxy.
If you’re dolling up your jeans or creating some fashion fireworks for you or the kids for that 4th of July picnic, you’ll find that the Hotfix crystals are ideal. These special crystals from CRYSTALLIZED™ Swarovski Elements feature a heat-activated adhesive that’s designed to melt and bond with fabric surfaces.
You can use a standard iron to apply the flat back hotfix crystals, but for pinpoint accuracy and control, the hotfix tool from Jolee’s Jewels is a dream. For a quick lesson, click here for a brief video.
