A common problem with Swarovski Crystal is the adhesive fails.  Over the years I have repair many pieces that have just fallen apart. The new adhesives  are very strong. It is important to clean off all the old adhesive .

Crystal Repair Swarovski Whale

It’s hard to swim straight with no tail. This whale was in need of some saving.  It was a simple repair. Please view some of my other Swarovski repairs if you have a piece of crystal that needs to be rescued.

This mouse must have lost a fight with a cat. Both ears were off and the tail was missing from this whimsical Swarovski crystal mouse. Now he looks good as new with a spring in his tail.

A Broken Crystal flower with missing piece of the stem needed to be repaired. I asked if they could send in one of the flowers that was not broken to use as a guide . Then I make a new stem and replaced the broke one. In this repair the challange was getting what was left of the stem out with out breaking any leaves.
