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

Challenges, Thank You Cards and a CI Wedding! :)

Time is flying by and taking a month off work didn't help much because time flew by even quicker :) 


For all who were wondering why CI was closed in April, well basically I was getting married, hence HQ had to close till I got back.
For everyone who is wondering who the lucky guy is, here he is... Me and my husband Adeel:





Now that we're back to work, I'm having an awesome time creating exclusive designs for some of the biggest brands in the UK/world. To name drop a few: new series of ITV1 All Star Mr & Mrs, Blackberry, Benefit & YSL. So yeah it's a bit crazy here right now. 



I also wanted to share with you this amazing commission from Sharon Preece, my very special long time customer. Sharon basically wanted the following Louboutin shoes design on her iPhone 4s case:




A bit of a challenge right? I would say a HUGE challenge. Heres how it turned out:



Sharon absolutely loves her new phone and I'm so pleased it turned out so well. And on another exciting front I received my 13th thank you card from Nicola Brown, our Facebook competition winner who also had some Loubs on her iPhone 4s:






Thank you so much Nicola! It is now proudly on display in the CI office. xoxo

Happy New Year 2012


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.


2011 has to have been one of the most eventful years at Crystal Iced, but every year is special and I cannot wait to see what innovations Crystal Iced brings forth in 2012. Oh, did I tell you we're working on a DRUM KIT for a huge celebrity!! It looks amazing and I can't wait to reveal the pictures of the completed drumkit soon. Here's a before picture for you to start imagining the outcome:




I also noticed that I didn't blog about the Canti sign we CI'd for Harrod's last year.. If you visit Harrods you can find the sign on the ground floor, so don't forget to check it out. I also haven't posted the pictures of all the products I designed for the A Crystal Christmas at Harrods.. Inspired by Swarovski Event, but I'm hoping to add them to the new B2B Corporate page on my website soon, so keep a look out (because there are quite a few!!).


I hope 2012 is a happy, joyful, successful, colourful & of course healthy year for everyone. Also, heres a 10% of  Promotion code, which can be used on the Crystal Iced website to redeem 10% off ALL purchases in January only. Enter: WELCOME2012 at checkout.
Enjoy! :)
