As you might surmise from our name, we love sparklies. There is nothing more satisfying than watching a gorgeous piece of crystal jewelry sending multi color flashes - well I suppose a diamond on the left ring finger just might be more satisfying to some..

This Christmas season we will be making Christmas trees from Swarovski crystal - margueritas, bicones, rounds and cubes are used. We will have trees of Peridot green with mocca (I know, the word looks misspelled, but that is how Swarovski spells it) trunks and a tiny 3mm red Sian round on top, heliotrope - for the sophisticated purple lover, Light Colorado Topaz, Crystal AB and Vitrail Medium trees.

Last year we sold the Peridot and the Crystal AB trees and people really liked them. It will be interesting to see how the less traditional colors do. Usually our jewelry is OOAK but it is so easy to sit in front of the TV together while Barb puts the earrings together and people aren't really looking for a unique piece at holiday time - they want something that makes them feel festive.

Oh yes, we do like our sparklies!
