Sparkleez Crystals loves doing Art and Craft Shows! If you don't do them you have no idea how much preparation is involved. Learn the difference between juried and non juried and which is better.
Reading crochet patterns can be daunting! We offer a lot of crochet classes at Sparkleez Crystals.
Christmas is here! We are having some special events at the store: Small Business Saturday (Saturday, Nov 26), Secret Santa Sale (Saturday, Dec 17) and Holiday Open House (Saturday, Dec 17).
Let's share our art with everyone and promote more artistic beings rather than worrying about being copied. Nobody else can be you or me. We all have something unique to offer to the universe.
We recently hosted a Community Fund Raiser. We had a weekend marathon of knitting and crocheting hats for cancer patients. It was the first community event Sparkleez Crystals has ever hosted. I think it was a huge success for a first time event.
Some days don't go exactly as planned. Can you relate?
Come craft with us at Sparkleez Crystals ~ 1147 E. Main St in Ashland, Ohio.
All of the classes are on our web site under the events calendar. You can also like our Facebook page and look at the events.
Holidays often make us feel overwhelmed and under appreciated. Do you get a little depressed in this time when you should be celebrating? Is it easy to slip into the scrooge mode?
The holiday is upon us! Only a couple of months to finish those Christmas Gifts! Are you feeling overwhelmed? Sparkleez Crystals is having a "Crafting for Christmas" sale through October 31. All yarn, beads, tools and crafting supplies are 25% OFF.
Please shop locally this holiday. Sparkleez Crystals has beautiful jewelry made with Swarovski Elements for every day and for special occasions. We can also custom make jewelry for you from Stones, Crystals, Glass Beads and more!
Some days I just want to go back to bed. It is a struggle to gain enough energy to even face the day. On those days I turn to scripture to get me through and remind me there is hope
I taught a class in precious metal clay today. One of my previous customers had mentioned what a great spiritual lesson she learned from taking the class.
Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Bead Club meets every month on the second Thursday evening at 6:30 PM. We usually have projects and sometimes guest teachers and presenters.
Wedding Jewelry is my absolute favorite jewelry to make. At Sparkleez Crystals we use sterling silver chains, findings and components along with world famous Swarovski Elements
Do not despair. There is hope. God has got our back and He has given us his Word to fight the battles.

Sparkleez Crystals sells items on Etsy. What is Etsy? Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect, to make, sell and buy unique goods.
What the heck is a Trunk Show? It is an event where vendors present their merchandise directly to the customers at a retail location.
One of the most popular classes at Sparkleez Crystals is PMC or Precious Metal Clay.
FAITH ~ strong belief or trust in someone or something. Firm belief in something for which there is no proof. Complete trust.
There are so many kinds of string and cording. What should I use? This is a common question when starting a project. It actually makes a big difference for your finished project.
