In a short period of time, Creative In Crystal has advanced its techniques and skills in the art of Swarovski crystal application.
The founder and creative director of CIC, Benjamin Ridley has always had a flare for design and a creative mind. His Heritage can be traced back over 100 years within the well renowned hand crafted steel industries of Sheffield.
For over 10 years Benjamin pursued his passion as vocalist. In 2009 he saw an up and coming opportunity to develop ideas on how to customise the Microphone he used. Always looking to stand out from the crowd, the natural medium he chose to make his microphone stand out was Swarovski crystals. People then became interested in his designs and the high standard of his work.
Quality has always been at the heart of what Benjamin creates and he wanted to use the “Swarovski” brand name to authenticate his work so applied to Swarovski UK.
Swarovski agreed that his work was second to none and through this Music In Crystal was born in 2010. Over the years Various different companies approached Music In Crystal to use our different application techniques to more than just music based products and so the decision was made to change the company name to Creative In Crystal (CIC).
In 2014 CIC were delighted to become an application center for Swarovski UK.
Every year the company has gone from strength to strength gathering vast knowledge of Swarovski products, design solutions as well as expertise in all forms of crystal application.
