Crystal Glue-In Charms

The last time I asked you why something wasn't selling (the Psychedelic Tye-Dye Beads) you gave me some good feedback by the way of comments and email so it's time to ask you again.

On Friday I put up a new line of Crystal Glue-In Charms that you can customize by gluing any color of crystal flat back you want. I thought they were just about the neatest thing I've seen in a long time and got 10 different designs (not all shown here) and 8 colors of sparkling flat backs. Running a scan on what sold this weekend, it wasn't these little guys, and my other confusion is a lot of the folks who did buy the charms didn't buy the flat backs.

So...why aren't they selling? You all made it perfectly clear to me via comments and emails back in July that Hot Fix Crystals were a bad idea, but these aren't glued to clothing, they're stuck to these adorable little charms. Or did I pick bad designs (there were others to choose from)? Take a look at the Crystal Glue-In Charms and please let me know what you think by leaving a comment below or sending me an email to

By the way, for whatever odd reason, the Psychedelic Tye Dye Beads started selling about a month after they were up...who knows why! :)


  1. I say give em time. They are super cute and I have been meaning to place an order for some when you posted but life just got in the way.

  2. I think the angel wings ones will sell well in time as they are simmilar to the ones you already have and can be personalized with the gems to match a birthday.
    Maybe buyers didn't know that the gems don't come with the charm?
    I'd personally be concerned about getting glue in that tiny little space and setting the gem just so without getting gluey fingerprints and smudges all over the charm and the gem. perhaps you can set up a project page with step-by-step instructions on how to set the gems without making a mess.

  3. Ahh...great minds think alike! Spritzy, I do have a page explaining how to put the crystals in right here:
    Keep those comments coming!

  4. Hi Carolyn. For me it's not the glue-in part, it's the "charm" part. I don't care for dangles on a bracelet, and I never wear charms. I use a keyboard day in and day out and charms get in the way and make too much noise. I bought some of the angel wings and have made angels, but have not glued the stones in them yet. I hope they start to sell for you.

  5. I did purchase these among many other things btw and I love them! When I am finished utilizing them in a project I will post a pic and holler!
