cute crystal creatures!

Valeen Hirata designs these adorable three dimensional little creatures using Crystallized Swarovski Elements. They are so freaking cute I can't explain and she said she makes them with tiny seed beads too! They must turn out the size of a thimble! Luckily, you don't need to figure out how to string the beads into these shapes yourself because she sells kits to make them!
How pretty is this crystal heart for Valentine's Day!

Val you rock...I mean, you're a gem... actually, you are more of a crystal!

  3. Kristin,
    you are a gem and I am a crystal! I am so in love with making these crystal animals.. this is the playful side of my designs and the Secret Garden Bracelet class you took in Tucson is my more serious look :)
