What makes your jewelry different from normal crystal jewelry?
Most crystal jewelry is not designed for dance or performance.
Normal street wear jewelry has stones secured with many tiny metal prongs, which will snag and pull fine fabrics. Not only can this destroy your costuming, but it can also interfere with your performance!
Ballroom Dance Jewelry has stones secured with special glues and resins that will never snag your costuming, your hair, or your partner! This will lengthen the life of your beautiful (and expensive) costuming, as well as reduce any risk of "wardrobe malfunction" during performance.
Normal street wear jewelry is made with chains, jump rings, clasps, and other metal findings. Not only can these pieces snag your costuming, but they can also come undone!
Ballroom Dance Jewelry is made with glues, soft fabrics, resins, and in some cases soft Velcro. No hooks, no clasps… these items are designed to be worn securely and safely. To date, I as a performer have never lost any of these jewelry items on the dance floor.
Normal street wear jewelry is heavy because it is designed with many base metals.
Ballroom Dance Jewelry is much lighter as most of it is made from a base of soft fabric.
