When the sexy siren Madonna donned a custom corset by “The Blonds” with thousands of cut Preciosa crystsals for her music video launch ”Livin’ for Love” or the Columbian Vice-miss Universe 2015 Ariadna Guiterrez wore pendants and pearls in various shapes and sizes to glamourize her garment and her body in bright colors…no one could take their eyes off. Madonna was all set to create music and lyrics along with style.
Team ChicLifeByte was recently invited to a product workshop by luxury crystal brand Preciosa.

You can make your own designer garments by using the iron or ultrasonic or the heat point machines keeping in mind the temperature, time and pressure and also the quality of the garment used like cotton or denims to create marvelous master pieces of art and own them and become a Preciosa diva in the making like I did for myself at the working table where we were taught by the experts how to design with different colour crystals.
I made a small smiley face with the crystals and brought it home to cherish as a memory of the quality upgrading masterpieces of artwork, the crystals themselves. All nice & lovely colours are to be found like black diamond, crystal honey coating, crystal monte carlo coating, crystal heliotrope, crystal light burgundy shade, blue zircon, aqua marine, sapphire, gold beryl, hyacinth, deep tanzanite, ruby or jet brown. I particularly loved the rose opal, the English rose shade, the blond flare coating and the silver crystal lagoon coating giving luxurious impressions to make you look different and unique. It can make your personality beaming and pleasing even from a distance like you are walking on the red carpet to create inspirations overnight.
