One of the biggest trends that we have seen recently is the love of crystallising. From bags to shoes, to mobile phone covers and iPad cases, we have seen sparkly crystal designs on everything.
And if course, being the girly girl that I am, I HAD to have as many things as possible covered in crystal, personalised to my taste.
One of my favourite summer pieces have been my fabulous crystallised converse made by the talented Katryna from Sparkle Sneakz. I chose the Converse Beach Glass Chuck Taylor All Stars, and the fully crystallised toe cap with scattered sides.
Katryna was brilliant throughout the whole process. We had a really good chat about what choices of designs were available and if the colour of shoes would be a problem as they had only just been released. Throughout the wait time, Katryna kept me updated on the progress, the expected timescale and when they had been posted. She even contacted me to check they had been delivered and if I was satisfied with them.
Satisfied? Oh my god, I am totally over the moon with them. I never take them off and unfortunately now they are showing signs of lots of love and aren’t looking as new as they once did! I did contact Katryna as I had knocked a crystal or two off when they had been in my suitcase. She promptly sent me a bag of spare crystals and glue to repair the gaps. Perfect service, don’t you think!
Do you want to see my amazing shoes? Here they are girls!
I was the first person to have this colour and design for Sparkle Sneakz, and I believe it’s been quite popular since!
If you feel like you can’t live without a pair of sparkly converse like mine, please get in touch with Katryna. She’s on Twitter @SparkleSneaks and Facebook.
