How it all began:
Hello and welcome to my passion. I have always been in the creative arts, I owned and operated a modeling school and agency for 35 years in South Florida, however, I never really knew I had a hidden passion for Swarovski crystals.
If you would ask anyone about me, they would always say my middle name was "bling". I love Bling!!
In 2012 I took my grand daughters, Holland and Jolie, to one of our favorite past times, making pottery. We always loved to do projects together. This one particular time, we decided to do a collection of high heel shoes. I announced that I would be putting Swarovski crystals on mine. When I picked up the shoes, I got to work immediately. The outcome was amazing. The girls saw mine and then I immediately started doing theirs. This became my first Swarovski crystal collection.
When I retired in 2015, I started to do pieces as gifts for weddings birthdays and baby showers. One time my girl friend said that I should share these special pieces with the world. That was the birth of Crystal Obsession by Laura.
I design then hand paint each piece individually. Then I adorn them with 1000's of Swarovski crystals in various colors and sizes. Each piece is an original work of art and one of a kind items. They are truly pieces that can be loved till the end of time.
