Crystal Parade Supplies Preciosa and Swarovski Crystals to Compton & Woodhouse for Special Edition China Figurines

Compton & Woodhouse, the UK’s leading retailer of prestige collectables and fine china ornaments, has enlisted the help of Crystal Parade to create a range of exclusive special edition figurines.  Embellishment experts Crystal Parade has supplied Compton & Woodhouse with thousands of crystals, which will be applied by hand to each of the 950 limited edition Coalport fine china figurines.

Wendy C. Miller, Director of Crystal Parade said, “As the limited edition figurine has not been released yet, the design is still very much a secret which we can’t reveal.  However, I can tell you that Compton & Woodhouse asked us for a gold coloured crystal, and we sent them lots of Swarovski and Preciosa samples.  They decided on the Aurum shade, and each figurine is to have 18 crystals applied to it and then painted with 22 carat gold.  This is such an exciting partnership and we can’t wait to see the finished product.”   

Compton & Woodhouse has previously worked with Crystal Parade to create the limited edition Gypsy Bride Gold Edition figurine, designed exclusively by dress designer Thelma Madine.  Each beautifully crafted figurine has been hand set with 30 Swarovski crystals – provided by Crystal Parade – to achieve a stunning masterpiece.

Working with a reputable company such as Compton & Woodhouse further cements Crystal Parade as the industry leader and most professional crystal supplier in the UK. Established in 1985, Compton & Woodhouse is highly regarded in its field and is well known as the country’s leading and most exclusive collectables company.  Specialising in hand-crafted fine bone china figurines, it also offers an array of stunning collectables, unique pieces of jewellery and classic homeware gifts. 

Yet working with international businesses on such a large scale is nothing new for the team at Crystal Parade.  As a commercial crystal supplier, Crystal Parade has also provided premium quality Swarovski and Preciosa crystals to a number of creative projects, including supplying Leona Lewis’ designers with 20,000 crystals for her dazzling X-Factor dress.  More recently, Handsome Trimmings has used crystals from Crystal Parade for its bespoke interior design services, which can be seen in the iconic Hoover Building in London.  Next month, Crystal Parade’s sparkles will be seen by millions in the window of River Island’s flagship Oxford Street store as part of an eye-catching window dressing.

Wendy added, “We do a lot of commercial work with businesses because we are recognised in the industry as being professional and reliable.  We supply our gorgeous collection of crystals to artists, fashion designers and interior designers on a regular basis, however our products are also available for individuals interested in crafting and embellishing.  Anyone with a crafting addiction should head to our website for a huge range of tools, products and accessories for crystallising, embellishing, jewellery making, paper crafting and card making.”
