Palace Green Opal

Swarovski® dreams up many colors of rhinestones. Palace green opal is one wonderful example. Palace Green Opal is the newest color crystal from Swarovski®. It is a beautiful jade green opal color. Bling up your accessories, paper and fabric with this wonderful new color!


How amazing is this bag? Kandi Corp sells these embellishments, which are called Brass It Up! You can order them at They are fun embellishments that come in copper, brass, and pearl. They are so easy to apply. They are pre-glued and it takes seconds to apply with Kandi’s HotFix Applicators. Now you can buy plain accessories and bling it up! Besides fabric, Brass It Up is also great on cards and scrapbook pages.

Quilt Festival 2007

Quilt Festival Houston, Texas 2007 is over. What a great time and such a wonderful experience. There are no words for how amazing some quilts were. The time and effort put into creating such a piece of art was breathtaking. There were many quilts that had hotfix crystals embellished on them. The shine and sparkle that come from the crystals make the quilt have an extra spark and look that make it look much more beautiful and special. Now I really want to put crystals on everything.

At Quilt Festival, I attended the Bernina Fashion Show. Diamond Odyssey, the 2007 edition of the Bernina Fashion Show, was a colorful runway show of exquisite design, mastery of the sewing arts, and unique embellishments. Kandi Corp congratulates Starr Hagenbring and Judith Baer, winners of the Crème de la Crème and Viewers Choice awards, respectively. For the fifth year in a row, both awards were given to designers who incorporated Kandi embellishments in their garments. For 2007, over 2/3 of the designers in the Bernina Fashion Show selected Kandi embellishments for the perfect finish to their runway entries. Kandi Corp has been selected to provide high fashion embellishments to the designers selected for the 2008 Bernina Fashion Show, Rendezvous. Looking forward to next year!

How do you use Embellishments?

We are always interested in new and creative ways to embellish our craft projects. Do you have a favorite t-shirt that you have embellished with crystals or pearls? How about a scrapbook page or card? Are you "edgy" or "safe"? This is your forum to share ideas, tips, or ask questions.
