Swarovski Crystals & Pearls Hair Clip Embellishment Project

July 22, 2023 4 min read

Gold hair clips embellished with Swarovski Crystals and Cabochon Pearls from Bluestreak Crystals.

Hair accessories have always played a significant role in completing our looks. Whether you're a general jewellery seller, or working specifically in the wedding industry, you must be aware of the impact that a well-chosen hair clip can make. Hair clips are not just functional but also serve as a stylish accessory, instantly transforming any hairstyle. The sparkle and elegance they bring can make a huge difference in defining a look. Swarovski crystals and cabochon pearls are two popular choices for hair clip embellishments due to their timeless appeal and unmatched radiance.

When it comes to adding glamour to hair accessories, Swarovski crystals reign supreme. Their precision-cut facets and unparalleled brilliance make them a favourite choice for both crafters and jewellery sellers. Incorporating Swarovski crystals into your hair clips will enhance any hairstyle, giving it a touch of sparkle that catches everyone's attention.

For those seeking a more subtle and classic look, cabochon pearls are an excellent alternative to rhinestones. These smooth, rounded pearls exude elegance and sophistication, making them a perfect match for formal occasions. Incorporating cabochon pearls into hair clips will add a touch of timeless beauty to any bridal, prom, or bridesmaid hairstyle.

Why choose between Swarovski crystals and cabochon pearls when you can have the best of both worlds? Combining these two exquisite elements on a hair clip creates a breathtaking piece that balances sophistication with radiance. The combination of crystals and pearls on a gold-toned hair clip exudes luxury and elevates any formal hairstyle to new heights.

Step 1

Prepare the glue

Fill the Syringe with enough SuperTite Fusion Tack Glue for your project, be careful to not take more glue than you need. The easiest way to do this is to remove the plunger from the back of the syringe and then slowly squeeze the glue into the tube, so that the glue gently runs down one side without covering the opening at the other end. It is important that air can pass out the other end without affecting the glue inside at this stage. Then reinsert the plunger as carefully as you can – you will face resistance because the seal needs to be airtight, the plunger is successfully reattached when you hear it pop into place.

Step 2

Guard against air bubbles in the glue syringe

Once the plunger is securely back in, you are likely to have a section of air inside the syringe. To fix this simply hold the syringe vertically so that the glue slides down away from the opening at the top and gently push on the plunger, pushing the air out until there is only glue left inside. You can then attach the needle tip, completing the syringe.

Step 3

Apply the glue

Take a freshly cleaned hair clip and apply a very thin layer of glue over the areas you wish to embellish.

Step 4

Add the Swarovski Crystals and Cabochon Pearls

Use the Magic Sorting Trays to hold everything while you work and use the Wax Picker Tool to pick up and place the crystals and pearls onto the glue in any layout you feel best fits within the available space. You might notice that the cabochon pearls have a layer of dry glue already on the back, this is because they are Hotfix cabochons. “Hotfix” means they can be applied using a heat tool when embellishing onto fabrics, however you can use regular glue with them and for this project.

Step 5 

Let the glue dry

We recommend leaving the glue to dry for several hours to be sure that everything is fully secure. Then the clip is ready to be worn.
