Dear Crystal World,
Today I had the chance to see some of your crystal figurines for the first time in a gift shop near where I had an appointment. Pictures just do not do them justice. Seeing them in person was like the difference between night and day.
I don’t see how any photographer, no matter how good, could capture how special these little figurines are. Words probably aren’t any better, but I’d like to give it a try.
I was simply astounded by the sparkle, the clarity, the brilliance and the colors of the refracted light (rainbows) produced by your figurines. Sure, the description says ‘fully-faceted lead crystal’, but I don’t think anyone will fully grasp what that means until they see one of these little gems up close. They simply radiate light and color.
And, the detail is phenomenal! Part of the awe-inspiring quality of each piece is how small they are, and how finely detailed. For example, the picture of the Curious Cat figurine on your website does not elicit the wonder I felt when viewing that piece in person. I stood there for several minutes wondering “How in the world did they get that perfect little fish in that tiny bowl?”
Another piece that caught my eye is the Turtle Trio. These little guys are just loaded with personality! I don’t think that’s obvious from the pictures on the website, which means people might be tempted to pass them by. Don’t! It’s quite remarkable how those little crystal shapes create three unique and loveable characters.
It’s beyond me how anyone can pack so much into such a small package, simply by using crystals. The artistry of the Crystal World figurines is mind-boggling. I’m starting to think that your figurines are a bit like potato chips – you can’t stop at one!
