Crystal Designed Art specialises in creating crystal portraits and wall art made exclusively from Swarovski Crystal rhinestones. |
Offering a truly unique work of art, each crystal artwork is created using thousands of Swarovski crystals, applied by hand, in an arrangement to compliment the design. The beauty these crystals afford cannot be replicated in any other medium as they are constantly glistening, bringing the image, in essence, to life. This dynamic quality brings a truly stunning presence to people’s homes and businesses.
As the artist behind Crystal Designed Art explains, “Crystal art offers the sparkle akin to that of diamonds hung on your wall and create a dramatic focal point wherever they are. Not only do they add a glamorous effect, they are truly mesmerising. I use Swarovski crystals as they are considered to be the best quality and have magnificent reflective capability.”
Describing the process used in creating a crystal portrait, she goes on to state, “The James Dean crystal portrait, for example, was created using a freehand technique. This allows me to create specific patterns in the crystal layout to define areas of the face. Starting with the eyes and working outwards makes this process a lot easier and gives an overall much more natural look to the design, comparable to when you view an artist’s brushstrokes on a canvas.”
The artist also uses a uniform technique where crystals are applied in rows to create a neat and compact final design, whilst still including detail in the image.
Crystals used are from the SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS range of flat-back rhinestones, which are all individually glued into place by hand. This process means it can take several weeks to complete a a piece of art, as in the case of the James Dean crystal portrait comprising over 20,000 Swarovski crystals.
Crystal Designed Art specialises in creating one-off designs, with commissions offering customers the choice of size and colours to suit their needs. Original crystal artwork designs shown on the website can be reproduced in the size and colours customers prefer, with the knowledge that no two pieces will ever be exactly the same.
