The Masters of Crystal

The Birth of Elegance

The birth of a new crystal figurine or piece of jewellery is not unlike the creation of a new being, or an artistic masterpiece.

It begins with a love affair:  the  artist’s undying adoration of the purity and beauty of crystal, an enchanting and captivating master.  Starting in the deep wells of creation, the  artist’s captures the essence of the initial inspiration.  The idea begins to take shape and gain momentum as it rises through the development and modeling process, gradually takes on its physical form, and finally crescendos in an exalted/ultimate rapture of fine crystal elegance.
