Lorna crystal wand

Alexandra | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

I love this gadget, the wand has several heads for attaching crystals, nail heads, pearls to garments.  The blings already have the glue on them, just pick up with the wand and attach to your item.  PROBLEM, getting the blings!  The stores here in mytown, British Columbia, Canada, that sell the wands carry only a handful of sparkly bits.  Searching the web brings up lots of wholesalers, and places in the States.  Anyone have a Canadian contact, store, web source to share where I can get lots of sparkle?

The Lorna Wand is currently out of production but can sometimes be found on resale sites such as ebay.com

    Hi Alexandra,

    For a great selection of iron-on crystals, pearls and metal shapes check out http://www.suessparklers.com . I'm from Alberta and have ordered from Sue several times, even though this company is in the US. Even if you don't want to order from them this site has a lot of great information on using the Hot Fix tool, same thing as the D'Lorna wand. Great service, and great prices. Here in Alberta I've only seen a small display of the crystals in the Fabricland store. Quite pricy.

    MarshaK.

      Thanks for this great site.  Sue certainly has the blings!  While I was searching around for a site to show the wand tool, I found Shipwreck Beads in Washington that would sell retail to Canada.  Again, thanks for the site, it really looks intriguing.

        Hi Alexandra, I was doing some re-organization of some of my 'Stuff' and came across some pattern books from Tulip for their Colorpoint Paintstitching. This was fabric paint that looked like beads when it was put on. These books I mentioned have patterns for designs which can be readily be converted to use with the crystals and rhinestuds. There's a color diagram of the designs, then a iron-on transfer, in different sizes, I think just by looking at the color diagram the 2 or 3 mm stones could be used, the iron-on ones look like 4 mm. Sues Sparklers has the mylar for making your own designs, it can be laid over these designs, the crystals laid in place, then ironed on to you garment. I bought my books, (each one has a different theme) several years ago, I always have to try anything new that comes out for embellishing fabrics, but I noticed that Tulip (Duncan Enterprises) is now selling this same product under the name Fashion Bead Paint. Maybe they have the pattern books out too, if you'd like to make your own designs. Marsha.
