Thank you for the most amazing year.

2009, has been a fantastic year for Crystal Iced, so many high profile commissions, and one thing I am very proud to say is that I have the best client list in the world.

Last year, in 2008, when I won the Tiger Award for Crystal Iced, "Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award", I thought things could not get any better. But looking back at everyone I have met over the past year through Crystal Iced, this means alot more to me than any award ever could. You guys are more like friends to me.
Not only do you appreciate and support what I do with Crystal Iced, but always encourage me to achieve all my dreams and aspirations. Every email I get starting with "Saima, I love your work!" or "I just love CI", means so much to me. Love all the quirky commissions too. The appreciation is phenomenal. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to write me a testimonial for the website and for all the thank you cards (I have three more since I last blogged - from Lucy, Sara and Humaira, so kind of you).

Happy Christmas. See you all in the New Year.
Will be back to work on 4th of Jan 2010. Speak to you soon.

Takecare & Best wishes
P.S. Smashed 2009, so very excited about 2010 ;)

New Pictures of the Crystal Iced Office.

Since I last blogged pictures of the Crystal Iced office earlier this year, it has changed. And like Crystal Iced it keeps getting prettier every day :) Only one thing.. My desk never seems to be empty any more, but my moto is the more the mess, the harder we are working lol.

I put up this chunky mirror and frames above the sofa, to match the black and cream decor.

We've made lots more sample products for the showcase:

And lastly, this truly amazing, stunning, gorgeous Jelly Belly Machine, will soon be available to buy on the CI website. Exclusive to Crystal Iced.

I will add more pictures once I have cleaned it up nice and proper....

New Pictures of Katie Price and her Crystal Iced Blackberry

Gift Vouchers Now Available

Gift Vouchers are now available to purchase online from the Crystal Iced website. If the amount you which to buy is not on the site, please get in touch for any custom amounts. Thank you.

New Design: Princesse de Diamant

This new design is similar to the Diamant et Perles range we feature on the Crystal Iced website, so it was well suited to be named "Princesse de Diamant". When it comes to naming my creations, my mind goes kind of blank, so I again left it upto my Facebook friends to decide. Thank you so much to Roro for the super cute name :)

Crystal Iced iTeddy's

"Crystal Iced iTeddy's" - who would have thunk it :) When Imran Hakim commissioned us to Ice his ingenious creation, we contemplated shaving its hair off to attach the Swarovski Crystals all over.. But it wouldn't look like the cute cuddly iTeddy any more.

So I decided to just add accents of Swarovski Crystals, to various areas of the iTeddy.. which gave birth to the ICED-Teddy.. Cute yeah?

These babies will be auctioned off for charity by iTeddy, so watch this space

(not suitable for children anymore lol)

Crystal Iced Blackberry Cases

We are adding to the variety of cases we have in stock, and have lots of the Blackberry models available to purchase in our online shop:
