If you haven’t heard, jewels are in this season. Take this opportunity to get a little creative, bust out your sewing kit, and spend your Sunday evenings adding a little glamour and sparkle to your Autumn outfits.
Sew-on Swarovski crystals take a little more talent and know-how when you’re adding them to clothes, so it’s always recommended to draw up your design on paper first, placing the crystals in the design you want. You should also practice on an old piece of cloth if you haven’t done this before. For art students and designers, our Swarovski crystals are the perfect tool for your designs. Sew-on crystals may take more time than hotfix or glue-on crystals, but the end result has a more couture look to it.
Autumn is about bold colours this season – power reds, navy blues, and maple browns are just a few shades making a statement. Why not take a plain jumper or top and create a stunning Swarovski bib neckline? This involves a well-thought-out design in a curved line parallel to the neckline. Take three or four large statement crystals – we suggest baguette, rectangle, or peardrop shapes – and place them at equal distances. Then add a smattering of small Swarovski crystals around each one, like our Lochrose or Xirius sew-on crystals. You can turn a plain t-shirt or jumper into a bold couture season piece.
For a more advanced design, decorate the shoulders or sleeve caps of your tops. This is a truly stunning look to jazz up a plain top, which becomes a statement piece for evening wear. We recommend our Lochrose sew-on crystals for sleeve designs to cover the whole area. Choose one or two colours, like Paradise Shine, Iridescent Green, or Silver Shade, and choose a variety of sizes; 3mm, 4mm, and 5mm. We sell packs of wholesale crystals, as many as 1440 in one pack.
For a different, subtle, yet shimmery look, decorate the back of your top. If you have a top with a statement zip down the back, add a few rhinestones along either side. Check out our Xirius sew-on stones and crystals in autumnal colours, such as Light Colorado Topaz and Emerald, for a pop of colour in an unusual and eye-catching style.
