Meet Kellie DeFries, the Crystal Ninja Recognized worldwide for her artistry, expertise, and professionalism, Kellie DeFries, aka the Crystal Ninja, and her crew of highly skilled designers, produce the most outrageous crystal designs on planet earth—all created with SWAROVSKI crystals. Kellie’s crystallization work appears with alarming regularity on TV, in celebrity swag bags, on the stars (and their cars), and swanky properties all over the world. Even Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Henri Bendel carry Crystal Ninja goodness. The Crystal Ninja never rests! Frustrated with off-the-shelf, hobbled together tools, Kellie began designing her own. Using her patent pending Crystal Katana to bling the interior of an elevator with over 342,000 crystals in London on a tight deadline, the Crystal Katana held up superbly, and she knew that anyone who loved to bling, would love her new thing. Recently discovered by the nail community, the Crystal Katana has been named one of, if not, the best tool for aiding in the picking up and placing the tiny elements used in implementing the nail creations from the simplest to most advanced. Kellie demonstrated the Crystal Katana to the Swarovski Executives at company HQ in Rhode Island—and blew their minds—proving its versatility, strength, leaving behind many other tools on the market. In 2013, the Crystal Katana was brought to market and Kellie is one proud parent.
