New Designs, New Products & a New Website! and some time off... :)

Hope everyone has had a great start to the new year? 

I'm busy working on some new designs for the Crystal Iced website, which means new products will be added soon and we're also working on a new updated website which should launch in a few months... fingers crossed!

The website will be closed from around the end of May, for roughly 2 months, as I will be on maternity leave (baby no 2 :) However if anything is required urgently, please feel free to get in touch via email or leave me a message and I'll see what I can do for you.

In the meantime, I'm running a new competition on Facebook and Instagram, to name this quirky new unicorn design.

Winner will win the iPhone 6 phone case and Swarovski charm.

Hello 2014 ♥

I hope everyone reading this has had a lovely Christmas 2013 and are having a very happy new year.

2013 has officially broken the record because I posted only ONE update in the whole year! Eek, what have we been doing. Busy of course hence the lack of updates.

To summarise in a nutshell, lots of the usual wacky commissions and projects for companies such as Virgin Airlines, All Star Mr & Mrs, Sharpie UK, Rimmel London, Show Beauty and Swan Lake Canvas Exhibition. I'm estimating over 500,000 Swarovski Elements applied during the year! Here are some pictures to feast your eyes on:

Happy new year! ♥ 2013 ♥ Let's re-cap 2012 :)

Feels like de javu again.. :) "With the sheer excitement of holiday's this year, I completely forgot to write my year ending blog post! So, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are having a very happy new year."

I thought 2011, was exciting, but CI just keeps getting more and more amazing every year. 2012 started off with commissions by big brands such Blackberry UK, YSL, Benefit and ITV1 TV show All Star Mr & Mrs. Then CI received the biggest commission to date, a full size telephone booth.

Alot of you will have heard of the BT ArtBox exhibition that took place in London in July. We had the great pleasure of fully covering a Union Jack on one of the ArtBox's! It was designed by the very famous Sir Peter Blake. This all took place during the Queen's Jubilee, so it couldn't have been a more patriotic time at Icey HQ. We were on an extremely tight deadline, but lo and behold we completed applying approx 400,000 Swarovski Elements in just 10 very very long days (early mornings-late nights). But it was worth every moment to be a part of something so special. It has to be a Crystal Iced commission/challenge that we can never forget. 

Here are the pictures of the glorious ArtBox fully covered in 400,00 Swarovski Elements:

If one wasn't enough we were asked to complete another Sir Peter Blake 2012 Union Jack ArtBox. As you might have guessed this was the reason for very few blog updates last year. It has to have been the most manic, exciting time ever!

Shortly after completing the ArtBox's we started work on Crystallizing products for the Harvey Nichol's Beauty Bazaar in Liverpool. I got to design beautiful products for companies such as Creme De La Mer, Origins, Benefit and many more.

Our year ended with a massive commissions by Samsung UK and Rimmel. We fully covered over one hundred Samsung Galaxy Note II's, using more than 275,000 Swarovski Elements and covered various products such as mascaras and lipsticks for Rimmel London using 500,000+ Swarovski Elements.

So as you can realise, after such a busy year our two weeks off for Xmas was a peaceful time of the year. But it's nice to be back at work. Happy new year all, can't wait to see what 2013 unfolds.

J Cole Dreamville Design

Earlier this year I was commissioned by the lovely Suman to make the following design on her Blackberry Bold 9780:

Here is the finished result:

Suman very kind sent me this testimonial, which was on the website for months:
" i recieved my phoneee and it looks absolutley amazingg better than i could have ever imagined! The crystals look so blingy i love it and the lettering is perfect just the way i wanted it! the service was brilliant kept me informed at each step when you recieved my phone and when you were putting the actual crystals on, reassured me as i was apart from my phonr for so long lol, they way it arrived in the post was wickeddd the packaging looked really good and everything was professional and so friendly and personal at the same time. im so glad i found you to do my phone as no one else could have done it as good a job thankkk you so much. you answered my 100 questions and made my phone look sexyy.
if j cole spots my phone at his concert which im going to i shall let u kno nd il tell him to give u a massive shoutout...thats wishful thinkin but maybe he will notice me and my phone haha i really do live in dreamvile loool! thank you so much for making my phone perfect i actually am in love with it you did an amazing job, love suman xxxxx "

I have always thought be careful what you say as it may come true and to my amazement Suman's word came true and the phone was spotted by J Cole and in his video Sideline Story:

Thanks so much for the tip off Suman, hope you are enjoying using your amazing and now very famous design :) xoxo
