Improve your "blinging" skills! This "Patent Pending" Crystal Katana by CrystalNinja was created by award winning Flatback Specialist and master user, Kellie DeFries and proven to shave time off the process of hand setting-gluing Swarovski Flatbacks, ss3-ss40. Do you use regular beeswax, but too soft, leaves residue? Tweezers cramp your hands and fling crystals across the room? Do other china markers/grease pens break, chip, and leave extra residue on crystals? Have you noticed the taller, sharper table facet of the gorgeous #2058 Swarovski Elements shredding other pickers and tips to smithereens? Me too. My answer to this madness, The Patent Pending, Crystal Katana.
The Crystal Katana is designed to improve productivity, speed and precision when working with flat back rhinestones. It consists of three parts: a wax tip for picking up stones, a bamboo shaft for easy grip and improved handling, and a chrome endpiece that encases crystals for precision placement. Designed by Kellie DeFries, the "Crystal Ninja."
The wax tip is fashioned from premium jewelers' wax and requires just a gentle touch to pick up rhinestones. This type of wax leaves less residue on stones. If the tip loses its fine point, you can reshape it with your fingers. If you get glue on the wax tip, wipe it gently with a tissue. Not recommended for with mica powders or glitter.
