Quick Sparkle Fixes to the Rescue!

It’s March.  You’re stressed.  Competitions are breathing down your neck, and you’re frantically trying to get all of the details of your performance together- tighter turns, sloppy arms, an extra practice space for an extra practice, customized costume additions, lots of sparkle, transportation, hotel rooms, scheduling and paychecks- all while trying to get a few hours of sleep each night.  Oh, and remembering to eat.  And, shoot…having enough clean underwear to last through it all.  (You knew there was a reason you should’ve done your laundry last weekend.)   So many details to secure.

And then, something goes wrong.  Dominoes!!

This crystal applique has been customized! 3D shapes in coordinating shades of blue have been glued right on top of the applique to blend the costume’s color and style.

Well, now the goal is to eliminate excess and find the simplest solutions that still communicate the fantasy performance you envisioned.  I have two answers:

  • Crystal appliques. Put a lot of sparkle down in one simple application.  They’re flexible, they’re pretty, you can glue them on or sew them on.  If you want to cut them at all, first apply Fray Check or a watered down glue to the cut line, and let it dry before snipping through the threads that hold those beads in place.


  • Performance Jewelry. Oh, girl.  Complete your envisioned stage look and add a polished visual presence with accessories.  They extend the costume to the top of your head, your fingertips and toes- but, they do it quickly and with little expense.  Our Performance Jewelry line is filled with classic but versatile styles of crystal accessories that were developed especially for sparkle and strength on stage.   Check out the earring styles made with Swarovski crystal, available in over 40 colors, and the sterling silver Performance Earrings for sensitive ears.  There are chokers to frame your face, bracelets to jazz up jazz hands and unique headpieces to add a character element.
