Sparkle in the New Year 2017
Dearest, loveliest, glitteriest reader. Please excuse my most egregious absence- it’s been six months since I’ve written! There have been so many updates at Rhinestones Unlimited in that time, and as you know, change can be overwhelming. We have new systems, new staff, new methods, new management, all up and running (bounding, leaping, twirling) by our end-of-2016 goal. We are so excited to share our improvements with you as we kick off 2017 together! Stay tuned over the coming months as we highlight some of our latest and greatest news.
But, today let’s look back on some of our favorite items that made you sparkle in 2016. These products and more can be found in our beautiful new Sparkle in the Spotlight product catalog and online at RhinestonesU.com.
If you haven’t invested two minutes to compare the savings on our exclusive 3rdline crystal, what are you waiting for? When we say it’s the “most cost-effective crystal on the market,” we mean it. We’ve searched the marketplace for the highest quality budget-conscious crystal, and you will not be disappointed. I’ve given you the why’s and how’s in previous blog article “PriceLess Crystal – The Most Cost Effective Crystal on the Market,” and showcased three PriceLess Crystal embellished costumes in article “PriceLess Crystal- Dancers’ Performance Enhancers.” See the clarity and compare the quality for yourself with actual product samples in our catalog.
These uniquely textured shapes are growing in popularity after the University of Minnesota Dance Team dazzled the dance floor one year ago at the 2016 United Dance Association (UDA) College National Championships. The University of Minnesota wore costumes adorned with the sophisticated sparkle of Swarovski® Crystal Rock and Crystal Fabric embellishments to secure the runner-up position with their jazz routine. This amazing team also clinched its 16th national championship title, taking first place in their pom routine for the 7th consecutive year with a more traditional collegiate style costume adorned with Swarovski® crystal. See the design process and product on their jazz costume in the 2015 blog “Sneak Peek into U of MN Costume Collaboration.”
Metallic Acrylics may be the most misunderstood embellishment at Rhinestones Unlimited. Meek as they may seem with such a straightforward name, this product is anything but. They’re rock and roll to the core, but can be surprisingly elegant when called upon, and are on trend for eons. Because you can glue or sew these lightweight little wonders, their versatility is a selling point on it’s own. Metallic Acrylics are the subject of 2016’s blog, “Add Some Attitude with Spikes and Pyramids.”
Turn the pages of our printed 2017 catalog for more inspiring products that will put the sparkle back in your spotlight. Then, be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook page for announcements of more news from the newly revamped Rhinestones Unlimited! I promise, I won’t make you wait another six months.
