Time For Tea At The Queens Platinum Jubilee

The Queens Platinum Jubilee marking Queen Elizabeth 2nd’s 70 years of service, is set to be the highlight of the British Summer calendar. We at Bluestreak Crystals are just as excited as everyone else to have an extra Bank Holiday to celebrate with tea, cake and crystals!

Make sure your street party is the main event in the neighbourhood
by not only bringing the best food and drink worthy of The Great British Bake Off, but also presenting it in style with the help of crystals that will sparkle in that summer sun!

Few things are more British than our love of good cup of tea and we bedazzled this China teacup with Preciosa Flatback Crystals (Non Hotfix). Preciosa Aurum Crystals are coated in a layer dazzling gold chrome, making it perfect for gilded surfaces such as this teacup and saucer.

If you’re decorating an object as an ornament Gem Tack Glue is perfect for this craft activity. However, if you intend to use the item and wash it frequently, we recommend CG500 Resin Glue because it is hard wearing and water resistant.   

Our enthusiasm for the Jubilee continues with a Crystal Cake Stand which will ensure you are the cream of the crop! For this we used Preciosa Flat Back Crystals in Light Siam AB for the outer edge of each layer and we used lengths Preciosa SS4.5 Silver Cup Chain to add both glamour and strength to the edges of the cardboard.

For the Union Jack Topper we selected a combination of Preciosa Flatbacks in Capri Blue, Sapphire, Sapphire AB and Light Sapphire. This creates a balanced blend of shades that help make the British Flag look extra special.

The most detailed part of this project is attaching the Cup Chain to the sides of the stand, the secret to this stage is choosing the right size to fit neatly onto the edge of the card.

To do this simply measure the width of the space you wish the cover. You can then consult our size chart; this can be found in the help and services section on our website. Here you will find the conversion that will turn your measurement from metric millimetres into an SS number that will represent the crystal size that will be a perfect fit for your embellishment project.
