I am so excited to introduce this brand new product line brought to you by Preciosa Crystal Components. This innovative new product is a self-adhesive, fabric backed crystal that can be applied to nearly any surface. From metal to wood, glass, ceramic, and plastic, Sticky Crystal will adhere to just about any surface. Sticky Crystal is so simple to use, it’s just like a sticker but so much better.
My first craft love is jewelry, always has been, always will be. Coming in at a close second, however, is scrapbooking! When I first saw the Sticky Crystal, my mind went to my paper crafting supplies. I’ve used flat back crystals in scrapbooking projects in the past and couldn’t help but want to use Sticky Crystal in the same way. In the header picture, I added Sticky Crystal to a simple “thank you” note cards that I purchased in the dollar section of my local craft store. In seconds, I was able to transform a boring store-bought card into something with a fabulous hand-crafted touch.
The same can be done with simple jewelry gift boxes. I pulled out a bunch of scrapbooking tags from my collection and glued them to the front of some gift boxes. I then added some sticky crystal and admired my handy work.
For these earrings, I used the these adorable TierraCast heart frames. The “back” of the piece has a lovely floral design with a keyhole in the center and the opposite side is an open bezel setting. I used two of the 7.8x13mm Sticky Crystal Drop shape to create these earrings. For the copper, I used a kidney wire finding and for the silver version I used a crystal embellished ear wire.
This pair of earrings was created using strips of Sticky Crystal in three different colors. The strips were trimmed to size and stuck onto the TierraCast Square Frame. I chose a gun-metal finish to really let the colors pop and topped them off with a kidney wire earring finding.
