(PRWEB UK) 25 February 2013
Embellishing is so in style at the moment, and embroidery is everywhere from the catwalk to the walls of the highest churches.
Jeans, the staple of most wardrobes, have gone from standard to fabulous this year. Denim teams up with embroidery and crystal jewels for a spectacular look that is sure to turn heads.
Adornment with pearls, crystals, beads and embroidery is everywhere, with the high street sparkling vibrantly with shimmering creations. As ever, the trend began life on the catwalk, and stunning embroidered creations by designers such as Stella McCartney are embellished with the most beautiful of designs.
And jewellery making suppliers have seen a sharp increase in sales as the demand for beads and crystals intensifies to keep up with this trend.
Crystal Avenue, the authorised UK stockists of Preciosa Crystals, reports that both professional designers and crafty individuals are using more stick-on crystals to embellish their work.
Wendy C. Miller, Managing Director said: “Preciosa crystals are becoming a well-known name because of their quality and sparkle.
“The high street trend is also reflected in many other art forms, with quilters and embroiderers incorporating beads and crystals into mixed-media artwork. Because they are so beautifully cut with 12 shimmering facets, Preciosa stick-on crystals offer exceptional optical and artistic qualities.”
In an extraordinary cultural event in Moscow recently, dignitaries attending the unveiling of an important statue of Saint Ludmila were presented with small embroidery portraits of the saint made entirely from Preciosa crystals and beads.
The versatility of Preciosa crystals enables them to be used in a wide variety of ways from clothing to artwork, nail and body art and even more traditional embroidery samples. Top wedding designers are seeing a resurgence in crystals and gemstones as part of their work and even homewares with crystal embellishments are a common sight.
As the economic downturn continues, more and more people are turning to customising clothing to keep up with current trends without having to buy a whole new wardrobe.
Shoes, handbags and belts are popular choices for decoration and the trend is now spreading to hair accessories and collars and cuffs. On a primary level, crystals represent luxury and femininity and are a fantastic way to express individuality and creativity.
Crystal Avenue crystal embellishments come in every colour imaginable as well as glues and accessories to suit a multitude of crystal craft projects. For more information, visit http://www.crystalavenue.co.uk
