  3. We just had to share this utterly fabulous idea with you that one of our talented customers has come up with this week:-


    The lovely Kim from @checkonforchefs on Twitter came to us with a request for several charms & colours of her choice & could we help even though it wasnt a standard 'pack'. 'Of course!', we said!! We love all manner of sparkly creativity so if you can see the charms on the site & pick your colours from our House Swarovski Crystal Colours then we can do anything you want almost instantly!


    After chatting, Kim mentioned she was making her own crackers for her christmas table & wanted to add the charms to each one. What a fabulous idea! We've also sent them to her in little organza silvery bags to keep them safe & protected 'til they tumble to the table in a festive 'bang'!

    This is what Kim had to say:-

    I came across Wine Glass charms via Twitter and this is my second purchase.    First purchased a charm as  small  Graduation present for my daughter and couldn’t resist a full set with cutlery on it for the house– gets attention every time we do a dinner party.       

     Started sorting out the requirements for Christmas (not much of a festive lover – bah humbug!) and decided that nasty commercial Christmas Crackers with useless gifts (or worse bits of tacky plastic ) didn’t really have much appeal.    Then the light bulb moment and remembered buying the charms in the Summer so, problem solved.   Eight guests with individual charms, hand-picked to represent something in their lives/character which I have spotted and not  only that but each has different colour crystals too – fantastic.     I might not even bother with Crackers at all and just put the lovely organza bag each individual charm comes in on the place setting with a little gift tag!



    Sparklies in Organza bags

    We think you'll agree its a beautiful & fun way to add surprise & sparkle to your table.....and who wouldn't be happy with Swarovski? Its really doesnt need to be expensive either!  


    His N Hers gives 3 girl & 3 boys choices

    Just choose from over 45 designs shown on the site, then either split the packet up or mix & match charms & colours to your exact quantity at no extra cost. The individual organza pouches are available in our Storage Solutions category.

    Alphabet makes it more personal

    Just send us an email with your requirements if you'd like to tailor make your charms & we'll send you back a fully inclusive price with super quick speed. Remember, we don't charge extra for putting an individual set together for you!

    Indulgence has the ultimate sparkle factor!

    The possibilities are endless & the only limit is your imagination!

    Twinkle can be expanded to up to 15 colours!


    If you have any other ideas or anything you'd like to share with how you've used your charms, please do drop us a line & let us know.
