What fascinates you about using SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS?
EVERYTHING! The colors, the shapes. Any piece you create using crystals and pearls bumps it to a higher level in elegance, perception and beauty. You feel wonderful wearing a piece containing these components.
What is your favorite SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS color?
This changes weekly! This week it’s Crystal Bermuda Blue (001 BBL)...I can feel the ocean waves and smell the sea salt when I look at this color. Next week it’ll be Crystal Vitrail Medium (001 VM)...
What is your favorite SWAROVSKI ELEMENT and why?
I just love the Butterflies and incorporate them in my work as much as possible. They represent transformation which is the way I feel when wearing any creation made out of SWAROVKI ELEMENTS!
What was your first experience designing with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS? You would think with a name like “Kristal” (yes, birth given, thanks to my mom!), I use crystals in all my designs, but not so! I stared incorporating SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS into my signature fabric bead designs. I was surprised at how the sparkle and glimmer of the crystals ‘pop’ with the fabric textures and have been enjoying this love affair ever since!
What is your favorite design you have ever created with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS? My favorite design is always the next one...
What are your hobbies?
I love to travel, wine taste, read, hike, create custom lotions, play with my puppy.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
A bright light.
What would you definitely take with you on a lonely island?
My BFF puppy Sparkle, my entire jewerly studio, chocolate (only dark), lap top so I could still watch Dancing with the Stars, coffee-lot’s of coffee!
What is the first thing at the day you usually do?
Bless the day with my gratitude list, hug Sparkle, then coffee!
What is your motto of life?
A loving hand-crafted gift from the heart is the new black!
What advice do you have for new SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS enthusiasts?
Always go with the best of everything! Best quality, best products, best job, best techniques, best tools, etc. You’ll never regret it!
