Late Summer 2015 at Kirameku

Hi everyone!

Summer has been a has been quite a handful with us moving to our new apartment but never the less, Summer 2015 will have a few surprises in stock for you! :)

So here is what Summer 2015 has in stock for Kirameku!

Giveaway - Dangleling Swarosvki Earrings : Why not start with the most exciting news...?! I'll be giving away a pair of Bermuda Blue Swarovski crystal earrings on August 1st! All the details will be posted here and on my Facebook page.

I will be giving away a pair of these lovely dangling earrings made with Swarovski crystals!

Craft shows : I'm busy as a bee stocking up the tables for my Henryville craft show. I am proud to have been selected to participate to this lovely fair this year again! Write it down on your calendar : September 12 and 13, it' a rendez-vous! :) And here's how to get there.

Bridal bouquet accessories : Yes, you read right! I believe those cute little Berries would be a lovely, sparkling addition to your bouquet. Plus, it's a part you will be able keep forever! Check out the photoshoot sneak peek on my Instagram.

New packaging : Due to many wonderful comments and the cuteness of my current gift wrapping option, I will be now offering a silk ribbon on every order...! So even a gift to treat yourself will be wrapped up like at Christmas! :) The gift tag option is always free whenever you mention me it is a gift. And it will be back with every order for the Holidays 2015 as well!

New business cards : I jumped on the summer sale at MOO and redesigned some more trendy mini-cards. I simply adore their cute size and the fact that they're printed on sustainable sourced paper.

Kirameku website : Last but not least, Kirameku's very own website will be launched by the end of September!

On this everyone, I hope you are looking forward to the end of summer! What are you most excited about? :)


The color dilemma and the glue adventure

Hi everyone! :)

I hope you all had a great week! Mine was off to a promising start, as when I opened up my mailbox Monday night, I had already received my Swarovski crystals and stainless steel earrings bases! I was super excited and I jumped on another suppliers website to order some more crystals. I wanted to do all the earrings at once, so that they would be all ready at the same time.

So here I was, switching and editing my cart all week, unable to decide which  Swarovskis were the most beautiful and the most unique. I have a set of 5 main colors that I haven't seen anywhere, and I'm quite happy about my finds since the lack of colors available is the whole point of me starting this earrings line anyways. I've finally sent out my order and I'm proud to announce that Vitrail Light and Rose Peach colors will be added to this collection! :)

On Thursday night, I simply had to try my newest findings! So I set up the earring bases, later out the crystals and took out my super-strong glue. What was not my surprise when I couldn't opened up the tube...! And once I did, my entire stock was completely dry....! I tested the glue on my own earrings to ensure I was pleased with the result. I carefully closed the lid and sealed everything. Why this happened? I have no idea! I'm currently asking my fellow etsians about this technical - and unfortunate - issue. So I'm sad to say we'll both have to wait a little bit longer before that collection launches....! I've reordered the glue, and hopefully I will have a solution by the time it gets here.

But, despite this downside to this week, I'm happy to say that I will be putting my smartphone to full use as I've now opened up an Instagram account! So I will be posting sneakpeeks and inspiration pictures more often! :)

I hope I will see you there!
On this, I have wish you a marvelous weekend! :)


Summer moodboard

Hi everyone!

We have a very late summer here in Quebec so I thought since the heat and the sun were finally here, I would share my summer mood board with you! :) I personally LOVE summer and one mood board is not enough to cover everything that inspires me for this season, so I picked my main 4 themes for summer 2015. I hope you'll like it! :)


Dreaming of Swarovski crystals

Hi everyone! :)

I hope you all had a marvelous week! What took me so long to blog again you may say? Well, I'm still setting up the apartment and been busy rearranging my atelier, trying to figure out the best way to optimize this new space of mine. It's only the second time I've moved and, silly me, I thought this time I would be able to set up and feel at home in no time since I had everything planned ahead. I didn't took into account that we were moving in a bigger space, and that in this case it meant a few furniture and light purchases. But before I will go shopping for some new bookcases and shelves, I had a very important and exciting task to take care of : shopping for some new Swarovski elements!

Did your eyes got a bit bigger and brighter? Mine sure did! :) I ordered a few new pieces last January, but as much as I love the new colors, that supplies order was meant to continue the existing Crystal Dangle Earrings Collection.

My last order of Swarosvki crystals Elements 

As much as I'm beaming to have now 12 different colors in stock - even if I keep postponing my photoshoot these days since its always raining - I wanted to create something new and dazzling for my upcoming craft fairs. As you may say the concept I'm currently working on is not unique and quite simple, but it is the type of earrings I've been craving for the past few months. I found myself disappointed with the color selection I found in stores, so I decided to create my own serie of Swarosvki Rivoli Crystal Post Earrings. I'll be wearing a pair at a friends wedding this weekend and I can't wait to show you the pictures…! My large supply order is on its way and I simply can't wait! :) What I love most about this new line? Those dazzling earrings will go perfectly with the Berry necklace collection and with the upcoming new Bridal necklace series.

On this my friend, I can't say more for now! Stay tuned for more details, sneak peeks and what's in store for the end of summer. I have to run for now, got to get ready for the wedding!!! :)
