Swarovski Crystals and Hosiery: Look Down, Not Up

Posted by Har-Man Importing on 12/1/2015 to DIY
We are used to seeing sparkle all around us, preferably Swarovski sparkle, of course. But we never think to look down. Well, start looking down! Wolford, the high end Austrian hosiery brand is using Swarovski crystals on their hosiery to glam out your legs!

We thought…..what a good idea! At Har-Man we have been selling Swarovski rhinestones since the 1950s and it takes a lot to “wow” us. This did. And it got us thinking…. What a great DIY (Do It Yourself) or small business project. Also, as we move closer to the holiday season this might be the perfect accessory to dress up your outfits for the holiday! Bringing a little bit of sparkle and extravagance to the simplest of accessories.

Here is what the individual stones look like close up adhered to the stocking.

Replicating Wolford’s design or creating your own unique one is easy to do with Swarovski Hot Fix Rhinestones utilizing the 2038 and 2078 styles and of course, the Bejeweler! First, choose the size stone you want to use, you can use the same size throughout your design or mix it up with various size stones! Make sure you put a piece of teflon, or a similar type of material, that will prevent the glue from going through to the other side of the stocking (aka: you wouldn’t be able to get your leg through!). Then just apply the hot fix stone with the Bejeweler and bling it out!

To get your creative juices flowing, here are some HOT designs from Wolford.

These tights are sheer black with over 700 Swarovski crystals applied by hand all the way up to the knee. These are Wolfords’s Cara tights.

Wolford also has another style utilizing 120 Swarovski crystals in the form of a band around the ankles, the Tiara Tights.

Most impressively is the Limited Edition Wolford Collier Tights (from last season). The Swarovski crystal embellishment here is in the shape of a suspended chandelier with stones glistening down the back of the leg. We can’t write anymore about these because we are literally speechless...

View our full collection of Swarovski Hot Fix Rhinestones and start blinging out your tights today. Choose for our large selection of colors and shapes to make your designs extra unique!!! And don’t forget to purchase the Bejeweler, Hot Fix Applicator to make application a breeze.
